SP Kennel racing schedule has just gotten busier. That's right Allen has signed up for the Yukon Quest - 1,000 mile International Sled Dog Race - and Aliy has signed up for the Yukon Quest 300.
The Yukon Quest starts on February 5th in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada.
Our plans are to put two competitive teams in both of these races. Allen's "Black Team" will be made up of young, strong veteran racers who need to be judged on a competitive 1,ooo mile race. The Quest will be a great time to test them. Aliy's "Red Team" will be older, smaller veterans who have excelled in 1,000 mile races in the past.
Our primary reasons for racing the Yukon Quest this season are: we currently have very supportive sponsors and fans, we currently have the best group of racing dogs ever at SP K and lastly .... we aren't getting any younger!
