The World Renowned Budweiser Clydesdales arrive for 50th Anniversary Celebration

2015-08-10

The World Renowned Budweiser Clydesdales have arrived at the Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono to help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the track.  The full 10-horse hitch arrived at the stables Monday afternoon, and were unloaded by the full team that travels with the magnificent horses.*
The track is honored to have the Clydesdales on Friday and Saturday evening, August 14 and 15,  as the hitch will go around the World-Record 5/8 mile track during the races.
On Saturday. August 15, a special event will take place from 6:00pm to 7:30pm on the track apron, with the entire hitch posing for photos.  Each photo is a $5 donation to Marley’s Mission, a non-profit organization that provides equine-based therapy free of charge to children, and their families, who have experienced trauma. This is a wristband-only event, and they will be distributed at 4:00pm on the Sky Bridge in a limited amount.  After the photo session, the horses will once again promenade around the famed 5/8 mile oval.
