Backblast #143 – Let’s Run Those Horses

Its Wednesday morning – what do I have planned? RUNNING

Preblast via Slack 4/16/19

On April 17, 1964, The Ford Motor Company unveiled its new Mustang model at the New York World’s Fair. The Mustang was championed by Ford Division general manager Lee Iacocca, with a suggested retail price of $2,368. The car was a great success and sold over one million cars in its first 18 months.

Whether your horse is a Mustang or a Clydesdale all are welcome for the Wednesday morning run club. HC’s are now being accepted.
