Charlie Smith and his wife, Terry Propps, are a team. Propps makes the breeding decisions and Smith does the training.
Like the horses he cares for, Bernell Rhone is a creature of habit. He’s held the same job, as a trainer at Canterbury Park, since the track was built.
Canterbury Park will have a longer racing season next year. The Minnesota Racing Commission Thursday approved a 69-day thoroughbred and quarter horse race meet for the Shakopee track in 2013.
