Pink Pony’s Last Ride

August 27, 2009

PonyWhoa pardner.

Another Valley landmark has bitten the dust.

The Pink Pony in Scottsdale has gone out of business.

Located on Scottsdale Road not too far from the Sugar Bowl, the Pink Pony was a gathering place for some of baseball’s most storied characters during their Spring Training stays in the Valley, including Billy Martin and Leo Durocher.

Much like Durant’s on Central Avenue, the Pink Pony was known as an old-school place to be for movers and shakers, a place to see famous people and a place to get a good steak.  Maybe there is crying in baseball.
