Hey racing fans, welcome to our first four-day racing week of the truncated 2020 Canterbury Park season.

Our leading rider is Ry Eikleberry with 10 wins. Last week, a three-day piece, past champion rider Jareth Loveberry won five times, most in the ‘room. J Love’s work on the turf has been splendid, and the ride he gave Minnesotan Maywood Hope was a thing of beauty. That race is worth a watch.  [ June 17 race 7  ]

Horse racing is a cyclical game, and when riders get hot they stay hot for a patch.

Interestingly, the most dominant trainer in Canterbury Park or Downs lore is Mac Robertson, and into this week his barn is 3 of 24 BUT has earnings of $127,000, which is tops amongst trainers.

As always we’d love to see u at Canterbury, and tickets can be acquired here.
