The first racetrack in North America to create a racing club for Thoroughbred racing fans, Canterbury Park has now teamed up with the Minnesota Racehorse Engagement Project (MNREP) to introduce a new version of their successful club platform for 2020.
The new club will not only offer horse lovers the opportunity to experience the pleasure, prestige, and emotional rewards of owning a Thoroughbred racehorse, it will also help horses coming off the track as they transition into new careers. All net profits from the club will be going to support local equine organizations that are working with MNREP and Canterbury Park in transitioning retired racehorses. These organizations currently include This Old Horse, University of Minnesota, Crookston Equine Science Program, and Acres of Life.
Joe Scurto, Executive Director MNREP is excited about the opportunity to have a club that will benefit both members as well as horses.
“Our mission is to engage new people with thoroughbred racehorse both active and retired,” he said. “The new club will be able to offer both. The organizations working with us to transition horses will also benefit. People joining will get more than their money's worth and support equine aftercare in the process.”
The new Canterbury Park Racing Club will offer members a free season pass, access to Canterbury Park's paddock and winners' circle when their horse races, stable area tours, invitation to an exclusive preview event for Canterbury's Festival of Racing, special discounts on Horse Country tours plus additional invitations and discounts throughout the racing calendar. The cost of membership is only $199.
