Canterbury Park, a horse racing venue in Shakopee, played host to animals not normally found in Minnesota — or even this part of the world — over the weekend.

The park hosted Extreme Race Day on Sunday, July 11 which comprised of camel, ostrich and zebra races in between live horse racing. Tickets were limited to 10,000 and a Twitter post from the park said the venue was a “packed house” that day.
