The 1-mile, $200,000 Mystic Lake Derby, the richest race of the season at Canterbury Park, will be run Saturday as the fourth race on a nine-race card that begins at 6 p.m.
Nine 3-year-olds were entered, including multiple stakes winner One Mean Man, who won the Grade 3 American Derby earlier this summer at Arlington Park. One Mean Man, the 8-5 morning line favorite, is trained by Bernard Flint and will be ridden by Santo Sanjur.
The Saturday race card also includes three additional stakes: the $75,000 Minnesota HBPA Distaff, the $75,000 Brooks Fields and the $40,000 Careless Navigator.
