The horse world will also be a part of Super Bowl Sunday because of a horse named Thunder, a grey Arabian gelding who is the mascot of the Denver Broncos. Thanks to Tim Dutta, owner of the North Salem, NY Dutta Corporation, Thunder is now onsite for the NFL Super Bowl XLVIII, to be held this Sunday, February 2nd at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Thunder, who is owned by Sharon Magness Blake, is a purebred Arabian, who has been the Denver Broncos’ mascot since 2004.
The Dutta Corporation is the perfect company to be flying Thunder to the Super Bowl, since they are the Official Air Transportation Provider for U.S. Equestrian Teams, and have shipped horses to such revered events as the Summer Olympic Games, Pan American Games and World Cup. They will also be transporting horses to this year’s Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, which will take place August 23 through September 7.
Thunder, who is flying for the first time, will be pampered and is flying in a double stall which to a horse is like flying first or business class.
Thunder may not be able voice his opinion but you can bet he’ll be hoping for the Denver Broncos to beat the Seahawks in this year’s Super Bowl.
