Equine Advocates Pushed for “Nancy” and “Declan” but in the End “Hope” may Speak to the Issues
ST. LOUIS — The three-week-old star of Budweiser’s Super Bowl ad now has a name: Hope.
Anheuser-Busch said Tuesday that its contest to find a name for the foal born Jan. 16 at the company’s Clydesdale ranch in mid-Missouri generated more than 60,000 tweets, Facebook comments and other messages. The name Hope was one of the more popular generated through the social media effort.
The 60-second spot chronicled the bond of a Clydesdale foal and the horse’s trainer.
The foal now weighs 200 pounds and will weigh roughly 2,000 pounds when she is grown.
