Canterbury Park Picks, Stats and More for Thursday, June 9th's Evening Card

Starting with this Thursday's card, we'll be posting some picks and statistics for each Thursday night program at Canterbury Park from some familiar faces from Horseplayer Monthly and elsewhere. 

Canterbury Park slashed takeouts for this meet, and they are definitely worth a look.

We also have a free guide to Canterbury, courtesy of Equinometry, with historical stats, racing styles, and other thoughts that should help you if you don't have experience playing Canterbury.  We'd like to thank Lenny Moon for putting the guide together.
