Kaplan, Strangis and Kaplan




Known for his longtime behind-the-scenes work with TCF Bank, prominent Minneapolis attorney and dealmaker Ralph Strangis was a critical player in helping secure the Target Field site through negotiations with Hennepin County. This year, it’s horses. As chair of the Minnesota Racing Commission, Strangis could prove instrumental in whether Canterbury Park is ultimately allowed to sell a portion of its land to make way for apartments and a business park via a pending restructuring. He has also been working with the consortium to bring a soccer stadium to Minneapolis, one venture where he appears not to have delivered.
