Labor Day Races at Canterbury Park will be a multi-species event

It is about that time of year again.  If you don’t already have labor day plans may we suggest an afternoon of racing.

Canterbury Park’s horse racing will thrill you (if you have never seen a race live you really don’t know what you are missing) and if that was not enough, the annual spectacle known as Wiener Dog Wars will put you over the top.

This year’s installment of Wiener Dog Wars will feature the ultra-competitive Oscar (rainbow silks) who was defeated last year and is back with a vengeance – see his “agony of defeat” look after last year’s Wiener Dog Wars loss in the slide show. The day will also feature 71 other miniature marvels who dazzle fans with their speed – even in chest deep turf.

Kids will enjoy the free face painting and pony rides.

The Minnesota Sports Report will be there to capture the races and hopefully some thrilled fans as well.  Check back this weekend for other ideas for your day off.
