Budweiser Clydesdales Performing For Fans (Videos)

Budweiser Clydesdales at Canterbury ParkThe Budweiser Clydesdales are the world famous collection of 8 to 10 promotional horses, who appear at events and in commercials, sponsored by the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Company. The horses first appeared in 1933, to celebrate the ending of prohibition. Most of the Clydesdales are breaded at farms in Missouri, which is also the headquarter location of Anheuser-Busch.

The Clydesdales are known in the sports world for their role in the St. Louis Cardinals opening day tradition, as well as other appearances in conjunction with the storied MLB organization. Perhaps the two things they are most famous for being a part of are the Tournament of Roses Parade (City of St. Louis Float from 1954-2011) and their starring role in Super Bowl commercials since 1986.

This past Saturday, the Clydesdales made several displays around the Twin Cities, including a visit to Canterbury Park race track, in the Minneapolis suburb of Shakopee, Minnesota.

Below are two iFolloSports.com original videos of the horses. The first clip shows them entering the main area of the racetrack and the second one showcases them making a figure eight maneuver. The excitement expressed, in response to the Clydesdales, shows what significant popular culture icons these majestic animals truly are.
