Canterbury Park track report


The Minnesota Thoroughbred Association will host its annual yearling auction at Canterbury Park on Saturday in the Ubetcha Bar and Grill at the north end of the grandstand.

Walt Robertson and his associates from the Fasig-Tipton Company will conduct the auction, which begins at 6:30 p.m.

Because of a number of withdrawals before the sale, all 11 of the "also-eligible" sales entries listed in the catalog will be offered in the sale. Canterbury Park will host a new-owners seminar in conjunction with the sale at 9 a.m.

The yearlings will be paraded in the track paddock for inspection at 10:30 a.m. More information about the sale and catalog entries can be found at the MTA website, www.mtassoc.com.
