Congratulations to Mary Crowley who is a fan of NACHO, the Beveren Family who are fans of CHEVIE and CHENA fan Becky Green. You are all winners of today’s random Dog Fan Club Draw.

You’ll each receive this phenomenal Yukon Quest poster signed by Aliy and Allen plus some other kennel goodies (although probably not until after the race). Artwork by Yukon artist Ryan Knight.


Nacho is a double Quest champion and SP Kennel All Star and is nowadays enjoying his semi-retirement with fun runs and hanging out in the “plaza” pen with his long-term girlfriend (and also Quest champ) Olivia.

Chevie is training to one day run the Quest. She and her Golden Harness siblings are a talented bunch of youngsters and it won’t be long before they are tearing up the historic trail.

Chena will be on Allen’s team tomorrow. Hopefully she will follow in her papa Nacho and mama Olivia’s paw steps and become a Quest champion just like them!

We will have more random Dog Fan Club draws during the Yukon Quest so keep an eye out for that over the next couple of weeks.

Thank you all so much for your continued support of the SP Kennel Dog Fan Club. To check out more information about each athlete including race history and fan club members go to our “The Dogs” page and click on each athlete.

  • Oh jeez…..I am so nervous…..all the nerves being channeled to one team. GO SPK! GO BLACK TEAM!!! HAVE FUN AND BE CAREFUL! At least we can all be assured that the health and happiness of the 4-leggeds of any SPK team -racing or not – are the priority. THAT is the most important thing. (If you’re a student of racing teams, you’ll learn that not every racing kennel is like this.) If you win? Great. If you place well? Great. If you don’t place well? Great. Whatever happens, know that all of us out here are proud of who you are and what this kennel stands for and thankful that you share your lives with us. To be under 9 days again? Sure, that would be spectacular. Allen’s the only 2-legged to ever have a team that could do that. But the dogs are the priority. Thank the universe. To all the SPK kennel crew, thank you for keeping us informed. We are all excited and will all be watching and cheering for you along with cheering on the Black Team. Moira – thank you in advance from all of us who aren’t on Twitter or Facebook – this internet is the only connection we have. So any tidbits you can throw our way, we’re grateful.

  • Congratulations to all who won the dog fan club draw! Good luck on the race tomorrow, Chena!
    Get a good nights sleep for the Yukon Quest! It is exciting! Go Black Team!

  • Congrats to all the Fan Club Winners!!! YQ prizes are always awesome! Glad to hear Chena has made the A Team! Good Girl!

  • Thanks so much for the news – Chena’s “passing skills” may be needed with the Black Team starting at #23!!!

    And congratulations to doggies and their fans who are winners this time!!!


  • I am honored to be NACHO dog pal which gave me the chance to win the Yukon Quest poster. Tell NACHO I to am semi-retired so will be watching the bouncing dog tracker during the Yukon Quest and cheering for his SP Kennel mates.
