Mac Robertson, Canterbury Park’s all-time leader in earnings at the racetrack, swept the Genter Stakes and Victor S. Myers Stakes July 3-4 with eight first-place wins at Canterbury Park.
The victories pulled in a total of $183,000 in purse money, which will be split among the owners, Robertson and the jockeys. There were 22 total races on Wednesday and Thursday, and the stakes were limited to three-year-old horses bred in Minnesota, according to Media Relations Manager Jeff Maday.
Robertson is from Nebraska but trains horses in Illinois, Kentucky, Arkansas and Minnesota. His horses First Hunter, Hot Shot Kid, Ready to Runaway and Mister Banjoman each won $30,000 in purse money.
Warren Bush, the owner of Hot Shot Kid, said Robertson is “certainly one of the best.”
“We always listen to Mac,” Bush said.
