What You'll Get
Out of work jockeys often drift aimlessly across airport runways, lethargically slapping riding crops against passing planes and bucking baggage handlers. Keep their noble profession alive with today's Groupon: for $12, you get five admissions with programs to any live race day at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, located roughly 30 minutes from downtown Minneapolis (up to a $25 value). Admission can be applied to one race or spread out across several events through Labor Day.
A first-rate entertainment haven, Canterbury Park is a popular destination for horseracing, poker, and casino games. Equine gazers can rain roses on a swift contingent of eye-blurring mares or awkwardly present a salt-lick bouquet to such superstar steeds as Sheso Dazzling, Hidden Gold, and Smarty Prance. Cozy indoor and outdoor seating grants peepers a panoramic view of the stomping grounds, and a complimentary program adroitly unfolds the day's festivities. Patrons can heighten their horseracing experience with a slew of promotional events throughout the summer, including a craft-beer event June 24, a fireworks show July 3, and a wine soiree August 19. Gambling guests can take advantage of Canterbury's online-education courses, on-track seminars, and handy wagering guide to ensure they aren't bilked by malevolent cigar-chomping stallions. Check out the season's full schedule here.
Canterbury Park's 300,000-square-foot grandstand features three levels for racing, along with an 18,000-square-foot Card Club. A free parking lot accommodates 10,000 vehicles. Lodging is available at nearby Shakopee Valley RV Park and an array of local hotels, which may or may not be haunted by a comely chambermaid with electric eels for arms.
Canterbury Park offers its own deals during certain events that might be better values than this deal; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
