Carlton Clydesdales to trot into Bega

THE iconic Carlton Draught Clydesdales will be making their way down Carp St on Tuesday.

Eddie Hetherington, general manager at Bega’s Commercial Hotel, confirmed the pub will be hosting the Clydesdales as part a promotional tour of the Far South Coast.

Trainer and Clydesdale team manager Glen Pate will be bringing four of these iconic horses to Bega.

The horses were at Moruya Jockey Club for Monday’s Narooma Cup, but left the high speed racing to others.

Clydesdales are a breed of draught horse originally from Scotland and have been associated with Carlton and United Breweries since 1864 when Clydesdales were first used to pull deliveries of beer barrels.

Long ago replaced by trucks, the Clydesdales are used for promotional purposes.

However, these horses are on the road almost as much, making over 60 public appearances a year.

Mr Hetherington encouraged people to see the horses and have their picture taken with them.

They are due to travel down Carp St and will be outside the Commercial Hotel from 11am.

The Carlton Draught Clydesdales will be at Eden at the Great Southern Hotel on Wednesday.
