The World Renowned Budweiser Clydesdales arrive for 50th Anniversary Celebration


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.
