From a Maryland Million, Ltd. release
The Suttler Post Farm Clydesdales of Mechanicsville, MD have been named the Official Clydesdales of Jim McKay Maryland Million Day. Suttler Post Farm is home to a team of ten stunning Clydesdales that make appearances across North America.”
“After participating in the Jim McKay Maryland Million Day festivities in 2013 and 2014, we are excited to be named as the Official Clydesdales of Maryland Million Day in advance of their 30th anniversary event,” said Daniel Mast of Suttler Post Farm Clydesdales. “The benefit of this partnership is two-fold: our team will act as ambassadors for the Maryland Million program throughout the year and we will have an opportunity to showcase our magnificent horses on Maryland’s Day at the Races.”.
