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.
