Nebraska Horse Racing Future still Uncertain



(AP) - Horse trainer and owner Sean Foley is worried about the drop in Nebraska racing dates.

The loss of the Lincoln races between racing dates in Grand Island and Columbus has forced Sean Foley, of Gretna, and other owners to take their horses to Prairie Meadows in Altoona, Iowa, and other out-of-state tracks.

Foley voiced his alarm: "If everybody is leaving, do you get them back?"

He's concerned about whether a new Lincoln track will be built to replace the State Fair Park track. The fair track closed with the move of the Nebraska State Fair to Grand Island.  A simulcast building is scheduled to open Sept. 15 on the Lincoln track property.
