STAMPS GET THEIR WAY
In addition to the horse, rider Karyn Drake will also be on site as the Stampeders face the Toronto Argonauts in the 100th edition of the Grey Cup.
"This is fabulous news and the Calgary Stampeder Football Club would like to thank the Rogers Centre, the Canadian Football League and the Grey Cup committee for allowing this great tradition to continue," said Stampeders president/COO Lyle Bauer. "This is very important to our fans and it is only fitting that the horse would be present to mark the occasion of the 100th Grey Cup and celebrate the tradition of the Grey Cup festivities that started with Stampeders fans in 1948."
While logistics of the venue will not permit Quick Six to race down the sidelines after a Stampeders major, the horse will be visible during the game as a symbol of one of the team's greatest traditions.
