Canterbury Park Holding Corporation
The tails of this Canterbury are connected to horses running around a track. The operator of the Canterbury Park racetrack in Shakopee, Minnesota, Canterbury Park Holding offers live pari-mutuel horse racing from May through September. The racetrack also offers year-round betting on simulcast races from racetracks such as Churchill Downs, Hollywood Park, and Belmont Park. When horses aren't dashing down the track, the company stages other events (snowmobile races, concerts, crafts shows, private parties) at Canterbury Park. It also offers gambling for card sharks at its on-site Card Club. Chairman Curtis Sampson owns more than 20% of the company.
