Racing is going well in Minnesota and Canterbury had a record crowd of well over 20,000 last Saturday!
Our main racing stable, Astar Lindquist, has had 8 starts and every horse has earned a purse check in every race by coming in 4th or better. That's a good indicator of how well our trainer Gary Scherer prepares horses to be competitive every year. With 2 of those starts resulting in wins, (Blazing Angel and PJ's Angel) we are winning at a 25% rate. Of the 451 owners entities that have raced horses this year at Canterbury, only 57 have 7 or more starts and our stable ranks 25th on this list in Earnings per Start over our goal of $3,000 of EPS.
We also have a 2 year old in training with Tony Rengstorf (AJ's Angel). Tony broke and trained this baby in Arkansas since day one. AJ has worked very well and we are excited to see his debut in the near future.
