Quick-six to attend 100th Grey Cup Staff

TORONTO — The Calgary Stampeders’ touchdown horse will attend the 100th Grey Cup championship game this Sunday.

Officials from the CFL, the Stampeders and Rogers Centre, the site of the game, have worked together to find a place for rider Karyn Drake and her horse.

The horse will be allowed to stand in the northeast corner of the stadium. It will not be able to gallop up and down the sideline, due to a lack of available space and resulting safety concerns.

But the CFL is happy to announce that one of Canadian football’s fine traditions — Calgary’s touchdown horse will be part of Grey Cup history once again.
