Fun on Thursdays

Thursdays at the track is always fun and busy. $1 entrance, $1 programs, $1 hot dogs. Beer is cheap and watching the races is always a good time

Lots of fun! No really clue how to bet on the horses but eventually figured it out. My son won a long shot. The weather was great. Pizza and ice cream cheap.

We were her for the final leg of the Triple Crown. The atmosphere was excellent. The horse racing was exciting and the food was great. They had a bunch of food trucks on site so there was a lot of choices for eating. American Pharoah won the Triple Crown so it was even better! We will be back!

We have been to several greyhound tracks but never had the opportunity to spend an afternoon at a real horse track. Parking was easy and admission very reasonable. We sat outdoors at a table under a shade umbrella on a pleasant day and had a great time. We bet small amounts to "show" and came out even on betting. The... More

Cool games. Good dealers. Took my money but I really did enjoy myself. Great A/C. Played pai gow and stood a chance. Not so much on the free bet blackjack. Drinks brought to our table in timely manner. Professional staff.

Went here for the Fireworks Spectacular for the 4th of July. Its a very nice place with lots of different food options. We got there early so we could place some bets on the horses. I recommend bringing your own lawn chairs and setting up early for the fireworks. It fills up fast. We sat right by the finish line... More

What a fun place to be. The racing was very good. Had fun betting the races. Great crowd in Minnesota. Lots of access to the horses, the track, the various sections of the park. Very reasonable prices for food and drinks. I will be back.

On independence day my sister and I decided to go check out the buffet at Canterbury Park for lunch.This was our first time there and what a mistake this turned out to be. The "brunch"selection was strange, random and mismatched. It appeared as if the Executive Chef had the staff put out whatever leftovers happen to be in the fridge.... More

Canterbury is a great late week or weekend get away, I love going there in summer when they have the night racing and sitting outside, it's only $6 to get in and I personally bet no more than $5 per race so a very affordable night under the lights. Inside seating also available if the weather is not cooperating. Food... More
