The Friends of the Mounted Police Unit – Worcester’s newest horse has a new name – Cash!

The name was announced Wednesday by Bay State Savings Bank, who sponsored the horse. There were more than 600 names submitted, which the Bank narrowed down to four before asking the public to vote on the winning name.

“During these challenging times, we are happy to give people something positive to look forward to, as well as include them in the process of naming this beautiful horse,” said Peter Alden, President and CEO of Bay State Savings Bank. “The Bank is so proud to have helped the Friends of the Mounted Police Unit – Worcester, as well as the Worcester Police Department, through our sponsorship of Cash.”

Cash is a 1,300 pound, seven-year-old Draft Cross with Palomino coloring. He is originally from Northfield, MA, and has done extremely well throughout all the training he’s had thus far.

“We are so excited to have Cash, and are so appreciative of Bay State Savings Bank’s support,” said Audrey Kurlan-Marcy, President of the Friends of the MPU-Worcester. “The Mounted Police Unit has been a great addition to the Worcester Police Department and has been very well received by the public. I’m confident that a horse as beautiful as Cash will have no problem winning over the public just like the rest of the horses in the Unit have.”

The contestants that submitted the winning name of “Cash” were Anne Adams of North Brookfield, MA, and Kelly Wharton of Shrewsbury, MA.
