In 1985, there were nine major horse races run daily between Chicago and New Mexico--all at Ak-Sar-Ben. Today, the Omaha track is struggling to survive in competition with four new tracks in the region--Canterbury Downs in Shakopee, Minn., Remington Park in Oklahoma City, Okla., Prairie Meadows in Des Moines and the Woodlands in Kansas City, Kan. At one time, Ak-Sar-Ben's daily attendance and mutuel handle averages were among the top 10 in the nation.
