Lincoln horse track closes

Sunday, the final live horse race ran at Lincoln Race Course. Nebraska horsemen have announced plans to build a new track south of Lincoln, but haven’t announced plans for funding or just how many years it will actually take to complete. The University of Nebraska has plans to turn the site into a research park.

The city of Lincoln will not have live thoroughbred horse racing for the first time since 1935.
