Handicapping Canterbury Park for Thursday, June 16 - Pick 5 Debuts This Evening

This marks the second week of Thursday cards at Canterbury Park, and the selections from our group are now available.  Canterbury Park has added a pick 5 to their wagering menu starting tonight.  It is a normal pick 5 wager, not a jackpot, and the takeout is 18%.  The pick 5, which is a 50-cent base wager, starts in race six tonight.

Don't forget, 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 there.  We'd like to thank Lenny Moon for putting the guide together.
