The Canadian harness racing industry has a connection to this year's Super Bowl thanks to a retired racehorse and a horse-loving linebacker.

Devin White has had one heck of a sophomore campaign with the Buccaneers. The 22-year-old racked up 133 tackles and nine sacks in the regular season en route to a victory at home in Super Bowl LV.

Prior to the game White told the media, "If we get the W, I don't care what they say, I'm pulling the horse out and I'm gonna hold the Lombardi Trophy and I'm gonna ride around."

The linebacker notched 12 tackles, 2 for loss, a pass defense and a game-sealing interception during the Super Bowl against the Chiefs and tweeted out the following:

General Manager Jason Licht agreed.

We now have this beautiful footage to show for it.

The horse in question is Artistic Dream, an unraced nine-year-old daughter of Major In Art - Stryper owned by White and bred in Canada by Twinbrook Farms of Embro, Ont.
