We've all heard of horses, dogs and even turtles racing around a track. However, Canterbury Park in Shakopee is going to run a race with an animal you've probably never seen before... a unicorn!

The horse racing track just over an hour from St. Cloud is hosting a Family Day on July 9th that will feature unicorn and llama races, among other family-friendly events.

Ready for an exhilarating Sunday afternoon? Magical Unicorns and Loveable Llamas take the track for enchanting entertainment in-between live horse racing.

Admission to the event includes pony rides, face painting, crafts, an arcade and a chance for kids to run the race track.

Live horse racing will still happen as usual, with the special events happening in-between the racing.
