Playing the giddy goat

The Oxford Times: ‘Oxford’ in the lead ‘Oxford’ in the lead

While most people spent Sunday afternoon watching the Boat Race, there was an unusual alternative.

The Goat Race saw three pygmy goats – called Oxford, And, and Cambridge – in a race watched by more than 1,500 people at Spitalfields City Farm in east London. Unlike the Boat Race, Oxford did not triumph, coming in second to And.

The event raised more than £10,000 for the farm.
