Budweiser Clydesdale

Horses harnessed to a different wagon bring thousands to Tioga Downs.

The world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales made the track rounds at the Racino in Nichols.

They've been the iconic mascot for Anheuser-Busch since 1933.

To make the hitch they must weigh at least 2 thousand pounds and measure 6 feet at the withers.

Rudy is the biggest of the bunch weighing in at 2,400 pounds.

"The Clydesdales are so unique because they appeal to people of all ages, whether you're a kid, an adult, a grandparent - everybody loves the Clydesdales," says Amy Trout.

Trout says they bring a lot of nostalgia and tradition, and that's not something you get to see every day.

Linn Redder from Tioga Downs hopes to house the Clydesdales on a more regular basis.

The last time they made an appearance in the area was in 1978.
