Two racing proposals
Canterbury Park and Running Aces Harness Park have submitted plans for their 2014 racing seasons to the Minnesota Racing Commission, with Canterbury proposing a 69-day season and Running Aces requesting 57 days.
Canterbury’s plan is nearly identical to its 2013 live racing meet. The Shakopee track’s season would run from May 16-Sept. 13 and include both thoroughbred and quarter horse racing. Cards would have eight to 15 races per day, with post times at 6:30 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays and 1:30 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
Running Aces in Columbus has proposed a harness racing meet from May 24-Aug. 30, with eight to 11 races per day. Post times would be at 7 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and 6 p.m. Sundays.
The racing commission will discuss the requests Nov. 18.
