Which of Canterbury's glory days? I believe there were two of them. Maybe three? Seriously, I cannot imagine a duller place to spend an afternoon. I've gone with friends a couple of times, and it was nearly as interesting as watching grass wilt.

As usual, great article Mr Reusse. As a big racing fan, I thank you for the trip down memory lane. The agreement with Mystic Lake makes the future look so much brighter for Canterbury, and I firmly believe that a bad day at the track is better than a good day anywhere else!

I was out on Saturday for the first time in more than 10 years. It was a nice day weatherwise and also an enjoyable afternoon. I will go back.
