Quick Six Allowed Into Grey Cup
If the Grey Cup were a PR game, The Calgary Stampeders would be walking away with the win.
Already their fans rallied to allow a horse into the Royal York Hotel, and now, it looks like their beloved touchdown horse Quick Six will be allowed on the sidelines at the big game on Sunday.
The horse runs up and down the sidelines every time the Stampeders score a touchdown.
But earlier this week, organizers said there was no room on the field for the horse saying it would be a safety concern.
The league released a statement on Thursday:
"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."
