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.
