A BETTER FUTURE

In June, Canterbury Park signed a deal with the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community that will add $75 million to its purses over the next 10 years. That increased its daily purses to the highest level since the track reopened in 1995 and contributed to gains in attendance, live racing handle and total handle.
