Carrots for the Holidays

SPHO-ME sponsors Carrots for the Holidays at the Scarborough Downs retirement ceremony.  Nine 14-year-old Standardbreds were honored November 29 as the veteran campaigners approach mandatory retirement at the conclusion of the year.  The retiring horses are Sassy Sarah, Armbro Brando, Foreign Authority, Go Nano Go, Lacy Asset, Northern Regent, Rupert Rupert, Saku, and The Quiet Village.  Congratulations on successful racing careers and best wishes for green pastures beyond the starting gate!
