African Animals run the turf on Extreme Race Day

There are few organizations that have the ability to put on a show for kids and adults alike. Canterbury Park is one of those organizations.  Their annual special events are fantastic family affairs. Extreme Race Day features some of the best horse racing in the Midwest – like they do every weekend as well some fun, non-Parimutuel wagering events geared to the kid in all of us.

There were sightings of camels, ostriches and zebras taking the track in front of a standing room only crowd at Canterbury Park.  The weather cooperated giving a glorious Minnesota summer’s day filled with jockeys riding exotic beasts from around the world in addition to the standard horse racing entertainment.
