TORONTO - The Calgary Stampeders are making a last-minute pitch to have their mascot -- a horse named Quick Six -- at Sunday's Grey Cup.

The CFL team is meeting with league officials today to discuss Quick Six's status.

The horse charges down the sidelines at McMahon Stadium when the Stampeders score a touchdown.

But Grey Cup organizers say due to the game-day setup of cameras and staging, there's no room for a horse to gallop safely at Rogers Centre on Sunday.

The Stampeders arrived in Toronto on Tuesday to begin their preparations to face the Argonauts in the big game.

Quick Six and Karyn Drake, who has ridden Calgary's TD horse for 19 years and five Grey Cups, stayed behind in Alberta.
