|CANTERBURY PARK RACECOURSE|
|The racecourse of Canterbury Park can be found in the town of Shakopee in the state of Minnesota. It has a track circumference of a mile oval and an inner turf course of just short of a mile. Its inaugural meeting was held on 26th June 1985 when the track was called Canterbury Downs, and it can now boast almost 70 days racing per year.|
I am grateful to Richard Gauthier for the very rare scans of badges from the track.
|Its principal races are the Claiming Crown, a series of 7 races applying starter allowance conditions. The 7 races are the Iron Horse, Express, Rapid Transit, Tiara, Emerald, Glass Slipper and the Jewel. The track also hosts the Saint Paul Derby.|
