A Night of Records at Canterbury Park

Congregation

Canterbury Park’s Thursday night race card produced a record payout of $161 for a $2 win wager and a handle record for a non-Claiming Crown racing program when more than $1.26 million was wagered on the 10 races.

Congregation won the fourth race at odds of 79.5 to 1 resulting in the $161 payout. The previous record of $153 was set by Burning Fuhry on July 5, 2014. Congregation is trained by Vic Hanson and was ridden by Jenna Joubert. The 3-year-old filly is owned by Jennifer, Jon and Marlys Goebel.

Handle totaled $1,260,309 with $1,050,943 of that amount bet off track.  With the exception of dates when the Shakopee, Minn. racetrack hosted Claiming Crown, Thursday’s handle was a record for Canterbury Park for both total and off-track wagering, surpassing $1,178,761 bet on July 3, 2013 when $861,768 came from off-site sources.

Attendance Thursday was 7,657.
