There are two major tracks in the state of Minnesota. However, they only offer harness racing. This is really the only limitation on horse racing in the state as online horse racing betting sites are completely legal.
Players in Minnesota can use sites such as AmWager or TwinSpires to bet online on any number of tracks or horse races from around the world.
Best horse betting sites in Minnesota
The state Legislature has authorized advance deposit wagering, which enables residents to wager on horse racings via phone or the internet.
The Minnesota Racing Commission lists these ADW sites as licensed in the state:
- BetAmerica horse racing
- TVG betting site
Laws in the Land of 10,000 Lakes allow residents to gamble on licensed charitable games, including pull-tabs, bingo and raffles, the state lottery, at tribal casinos and bet on horse racing in Minnesota.
Minnesota horse race tracks
The state is home to two racetracks, both of which also offer casino-style gaming:
- Canterbury Downs in Shakopee, which conducts quarter horse and thoroughbred racing. Check 2021 racing promotions here. No bonus code is needed.
- Running Aces racetrack in Columbus, which offers standardbred harness racing.
Both also act as simulcasting hubs, importing racing from other jurisdictions that residents can legally bet on.
