Budweiser Names Clydesdale After La Russa

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — Days after Cardinals manager Tony La Russa guides the redbirds to their 11th World Series win the newest Budweiser Clydesdale is given his iconic last name.

“La Russa” was born March, 12th of this year and is the perfect color to one day be one of the lead horses for the hitch.

Right now he weighs about 600 lbs., but will be close to 2,000 lbs. when he finishes growing in five years.
