MLB – 1985 – The Budweiser Clydesdales At Busch Stadium For World Series Game 3 With Royals Vs Cardinals


The Budweiser Clydesdales are a group of Clydesdale horses used for promotions and commercials by the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Company. There are several “hitches” or teams of horses that travel around the United States….and others that remain in their official homes at the company headquarters at the Anheuser-Busch brewery complex in St. Louis, Missouri….or at Merrimack, New Hampshire.  At St. Louis, they are housed in a historic brick and stained-glass stable built in 1885. There are eight horses driven at any one time….while there are ten horses on each team to provide alternates for the hitch when needed. Assorted Clydesdales are also used as animal actors in television commercials for Budweiser beer….particularly in Super Bowl ads.

Many of the Clydesdales owned by Anheuser-Busch are raised at Grant’s Farm near St. Louis…..where the Budweiser Clydesdale Stables at Grant’s Farm house some 35 mares, stallions and foals,… with an average of 15 foals produced each year.  Anheuser-Busch owns a total of about 250 Clydesdales….which are kept at various locations throughout the United States….which amounts to one of the largest herds of Clydesdale horses in the world. 

Since Anheuser-Busch owns the MLB St Louis Cardinals….who play their home games at Busch Stadium in St Louis, MO….the Clydesdales are loved and honored when the tour the playing field during games at the Busch….especially World Series games….as seen in this video herewith.
