Oh, Canterbury!
Oh, Canterbury!
Oh, Canterbury!

A place near and dear to my heart!

Around here, we know that summer time is officially begin when Canterbury Park opens its live racing season, and summer is officially ends when Canterbury Park closes its live racing season.

Canterbury Park opens its live racing season tomorrow Saturday May 27, 2023 and runs through September 16, 2023.

Here is my pick for Canterbury's opening day, Saturday May 27, 2023:

Track: Canterbury Park

Race: 2

Horse: Xavey Dave (ML 10-1)

The 10,000 Lakes Stakes
6 Furlongs | State Bred | Open | 3 Year Olds And Up | G STAKES | PURSE: $50,000

Here is the field (in post position order):

1. Doctor Oscar (ML 1-1)
2. Hot Shot Kid (ML 10-1)
3. Westons Wildcat (ML 9-2)
4. Thealligatorhunter (ML 8-5)
5. Xavey Dave (ML 10-1)

Bet Xavey Dave (ML 10-1) to WIN/PLACE.

BONUS: Also, bet exacta Xavey Dave (ML 10-1) over Thealligatorhunter (ML 8-5).

Yes, this qualifies as my "Longshot Play of the Week" -- if not for the month, year, or century -- because I rarely pick longshots.

It's not my type of plays to play (too many) longshots (but only occasionally).

And this one is one of those rare occasions that I pick a longshot.

Again, play Xavey Dave to WIN/PLACE.

To tell you the truth, I'm not much of an expert on Canterbury races due to the fact that Canterbury runs short programs (3 days a week) and short season (a few months out of the year -- not all year round like other tracks.)

For those reasons, I'll defer to the expert -- our very own Angela Hermann.

Now that's an expert horse racing personality that you want and should follow for her insightful analyses and picks.

She is by far my favorite horse racing personality.

I'm bias, of course, but if I'm not bias and I'm from a different state than hers, I probably would still be saying the same thing about her.

She is very talented, articulate, knowledgeable, smart, and above all, she is a wonderful person.

Now that's the profile and quality in a person that I admire.

And you all should, too!

She rose from nobody to where she is today is very remarkable.

She's a blue-collar type of individual with no silver plates/spoons handed to her.

That says something!

So yeah, I encourage you all to follow her and listen to her insightful analyses and picks.
