The sixth race Thursday drew a field of 11 with Crown the Cat in the eight post position with Ry Eikleberry aboard.
The race goes off around 9:15, we have again reserved tables for the group in Silks on track level. We will provide more information on the paddock, etc. when we get closer to race day.
Looking forward to Crown the Cat's race on Thursday. Sure would be nice to see 10 other horses behind him at the finish line. Go Crown!
Big field and a short race..Let hope the state government gets things figured out so we can see live racing for the remanider of the season and that they pass the RACINO!
I was watching the Animal Planet show "Jockeys" on Netflix awhile ago. They showed the claming process at Santa Anita. A track offical places a tag on the horse if she is claimed out of a race. What is the procedure at Canterbury? Will we know immediately if CTC has been claimed away from us? Thanks for the info.
I saw today in the paper that the first post got moved up to 6:30.http://www.startribune.com/sports/124687178.html
Craig – The procedure is the same here. After the horse is unsaddled, a track official places a blue "C" on the bridle. Likewise, the track official does the same thing if a horse is to be tested after the race. In that case, a red "T" is put on the bridle.Barry – Yes, races have been moved up 30 minutes. Crown the Cat is now scheduled to race at 8:44, new blog post coming momentarily.
