Jockey Tanner Riggs won three races during the Festival of Champions at Canterbury Park, which drew an event-record 17,053 fans -- the largest crowd this season -- to the Shakopee track.
Riggs captured the $50,000 Minnesota Classic Championship aboard Coconino Slim and the $50,000 Minnesota Distaff Classic Championship on Congrats and Roses. Both horses are trained by Mac Robertson, who has wrapped up his eighth consecutive training title. Riggs also won the $22,350 Minnesota Quarter Horse Futurity aboard Fly Eyeann.
