And they’re off. The Clydesdales, that is.


The Annual Clydesdale Sprint took place on November 24th. Over the 2 furlong course, the Clydesdales reached top speeds of 20 mph and the ground shook.

Now you might not think 20 mph is fast, but the sheer power of these horses is impressive.

Zelda is half Clyde and she has a good turn of speed. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that her sire was a TB sprinter. But maybe next year?

Here’s Zelda showing off her speed (and her bucking).
