Another gem in Canterbury Park’s brilliant, goofy series of non-pony races, the Running of the Bulldogs has slotted its fifth annual race for this Monday. A mighty 97 frown-faced pups race in six heats throughout the day, alongside regular horse races and face painting and pony rides for the young un’s. Canterbury is also serving the mandatory Memorial Monday BBQ meal, and diners get to vote for their fave ‘Q. We’re really hoping for some smooshy face slo-mo recaps during the run. Monday, 12:45-5 p.m. $7.Isabelle Wattenberg
