After a 15-year hiatus, the Budweiser Clydesdales will appear at Saratoga Race Course in partnership with Anheuser-Busch and local distributor Saratoga Eagle. The Budweiser Clydesdales will return to Saratoga Wednesday, Aug. 10 and Friday, Aug. 12.
“It's an honor to welcome the Budweiser Clydesdales back to Saratoga Race Course,” said Don Scott, NYRA Vice President of Marketing. “These horses are globally renowned and we are thrilled that our fans will have the opportunity to see them in person. We thank Saratoga Eagle for helping to secure the Budweiser Clydesdales and Anheuser-Busch for including historic Saratoga on the 2022 national tour for these magnificent animals.”
To kick off their visit Wednesday, the Budweiser Clydesdales will be stationed at select Saratoga admission gates to greet fans from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. That afternoon, a Budweiser Clydesdale will parade before guests in the Paddock and visit the Winner's Circle. On Aug. 12, fans can enjoy photo opportunities with the full hitch of eight Budweiser Clydesdales. The hitch will be stationed near Horse Sense, located across from Gate A, near the Berkshire Bank Family Zone. Between races, the Budweiser Clydesdales will parade for fans on the main track in front of the grandstand.
