Minnesota Racing Commission Approves Extra Week of Canterbury Races
Racing enthusiasts will have an extra week of fun at Canterbury Park next year. On Thursday the state racing commission gave the go ahead for a 69-day schedule.
Races will start May 17 and run through September 14.
Canterbury officials had originally requested a 68-day schedule but changed that last week. This year's schedule was 62 days.
Races will start at 7 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays and weekend and holiday races will start at 1:30 p.m.
The additional days will make the 2013 season the longest since 2006 when the same number of days were conducted.
