Canterbury Park has one more great weekend of racing planned to close out the 2012 season that ends Monday. As they enjoy bigger crowds, larger purses and higher quality horses, Canterbury's 10-year deal added about 35% to this year's purses, approximately 2.6 million dollars.

Sunday's Festival of Champions will feature the best Minnesota-bred horses and offer more than $400,000 in purse money. With a card that features 11 races, Canterbury expects their biggest crowd of the season.

Post times: Friday - 7 p.m., Saturday, Sunday and Monday - 1:30 p.m.
