If you’re looking for heart-pounding excitement head over to Canterbury Park—Minnesota’s premier Racetrack and Card Casino. From mid-May through Labor Day you can catch live Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing, and the park’s recently remodeled Card Casino deals up action 24/7 with the Midwest’s largest variety of table games. Located just 25 minutes south of downtown Minneapolis in Shakopee, Canterbury’s poker games run the gamut as well, including the traditional—Texas Hold’em, 7-Card Stud and Blackjack—and the more unique: Pai Gow Poker, EZ Baccarat, Let it Ride, 3-Card Poker and more. Plus, Canterbury Special Events Center is open all year, and the Race Book is home to year-round simulcast wagering where you can watch all the action from the country’s top racetracks with plenty of betting opportunities. With more than 500 TVs, you can reserve a private table or simply chose one of 250 seats at the betting corals in the main Race Book area.
