Meet's Human Champions Honored

The leading owner, trainer and jockey are being honored between the 8th and 9th races today.

Owner: Jer-Mar Stables
Trainer: Mac Robertson
Jockey: Dean Butler

Congratulations to all the winners, but especially to Dean Butler, regular rider of our boy Fizzy Pop. Nicely done!

Attendance is up 8% this year according to Curtis Sampson, head of the Canterbury ownership group. In a tough economy it's a testament to the popularity of racing in Minnesota as well as the fantastic job that Canterbury Park does in bringing in the fans and keep them coming back.
