SHAKOPEE, Minn. -- Calling a horse race is anything but a walk in the park. It takes skill, knowledge and an incredible ability to think and react on the fly. Canterbury park voice Paul Allen showed KARE11's Dave Schwartz what it takes to call a race and even gave a Dave a chance to get behind the microphone.

Check out the video to see 'the voice of Canterbury' Paul Allen show Schwartz the ropes and to see how Dave does when it's lights, camera, action.
