And Now For Something Completely Different

You know I believe racing has to try innovative things and this past weekend, Canterbury Park tried something different.  A twenty horse race spanned over the turf and dirt course.  Twenty horses in one race with 12 starting on the turf and 8 on the main track.  There was a slight difference in distance to accomodate a perceived advantage of turf horses.  Well, here it is.

Certainly not my cup of tea, but give them credit for trying.  No charts are available of this twin race so I can't tell how well received it was.
