Canterbury Park (Nasdaq: CPHC) (formerly Canterbury Downs), is a horse racing track in Shakopee, Minnesota, United States. Canterbury Park Holding Corporation (“Canterbury Park”) hosts pari-mutuel wagering on live thoroughbred and quarter horse racing at its facilities in Shakopee, Minnesota and pari-mutuel wagering on races held at out-of-state racetracks that are simulcast to the Racetrack. In addition, the Canterbury Park Card Casino operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is also regulated by the Minnesota Racing Commission. Casino games include blackjack, baccarat, Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em and poker. Canterbury Park also derives revenues from related services and activities, such as concessions, parking, admissions and programs, and from other entertainment events held at the Racetrack. Furthermore, Canterbury Park is pursuing a strategy to enhance shareholder value by the ongoing development of a total of approximately 140 acres of underutilized land surrounding the Racetrack in a project known as Canterbury Commons. The Company is continuing to pursue several mixed-use development opportunities for the underutilized land, directly and through joint ventures.

Canterbury Park has hosted the Claiming Crown of horse racing for all but four years since its inception in 1999.The inaugural Mystic Lake Derby, offering the largest purse at the track since 1991, was run on July 28, 2012. The race was won by the 3-year-old Hammers Terror in a time of 1:37.18 over the one mile turf event.
The racetrack park also includes a card club. A two-week series of poker tournaments, Fall Poker Classic, is held each fall at Canterbury Park.

  • Awesome card room. Fantastic staff. Great dealers and floor support. Treat customers with respect regardless of limits. How it should be! Always a treat to come up and play! Lots of options and usually not a long waiting list. See you again soon!
  • Really fun place to spend time. Bring the kids on a Sunday for Pepsi family fun day. Pony rides, face painting and playground equipment for kids. Reserve a table on the third floor and enjoy a day of horse racing at its finest.
