Whole Nine Yards to Exhibit at Tennessee - Duke Game



The Whole Nine Yards, 2003 World Grand Champion Tennessee Walking Horse, will be exhibited at the University of Tennessee homecoming game against Duke University Nov. 1 at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn. The exhibition will take place immediately before kickoff and will be seen by over 105,000 fans plus a regional television audience.

David L. Howard, who manages the exhibition every year in conjunction with the University, commented, “It is more than appropriate that Bill Bobo will be riding in Neyland Stadium as there is not a bigger UT fan in the horse business. The Whole Nine Yards is a great representative for our breed, and I am sure he will bring credit and promotion to the breed.”

Howard added, “We appreciate the University providing this wonderful opportunity for our horse every year, and recently retired Athletic Director Doug Dickey was most helpful getting this program established years ago. The Athletic Department, the Veterinary Medicine School and the whole University go above and beyond in hosting the horse and his followers and we cannot adequately express our sincere appreciation.”
