The doors of Canterbury Park are always open to the general public to use the card room and there are horse racing betting options available often as well. On Kentucky Derby day, May 4, 2013 patrons flocked to Canterbury Park to watch and wager on the big race.
Visitors were treated to a sea of racing enthusiasts and a kaleidoscope of colorful hats and dresses as the fans in Minnesota got into derby mood. Unfortunately the weather was unseasonably cold but fans were enthusiastic none the less.
Live racing starts at Canterbury Park on Thursday May 17. The racing photos were taken at Canterbury Park last year.
