Sitting just to the northeast of Des Moines, Iowa, is Prairie Meadows, a 31-year-old horseracing track that, in addition to some of the Midwest's most beautiful country, features Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horse racing. Also, the track boasts an up-to-date casino and sports betting facility.

Prairie Meadows offers a truly robust schedule of live races. Starting in early May, the track offers live Thoroughbred racing four days a week—Thursday through Sunday—plus holiday races. Thoroughbred racing continues through early September. Quarter Horse racing has some overlap with the Thoroughbred meet. Quarter Horses run three days a week, Friday through Sunday, from mid-August through mid-October.

 

As part of their racing calendar, Prairie Meadows hosts two graded stakes races. The Iowa Oaks Stakes is a Grade III 1-1/16 mile race for three-year-old Thoroughbred fillies with a purse of $200,000. The Prairie Meadows Cornhusker Handicap is also a Grade III Thoroughbred 1-1/8 mile stakes race for horses three and older with a purse of $300,000.

 

The track's policies are absolutely user-friendly, designed to simplify every aspect of the racetrack experience for guests. General admission and parking are always free at the track and casino. It's a family-friendly experience as well since children under 18 are allowed to accompany their parents in most parts of the complex. Four different eating establishments are ready to serve patrons in addition to readily available concessions.

 

Prairie Meadows is definitely riding the crest of the new wave of wagering technology. MYBet mobile wagering is in use, which enables guests to use their smartphones and tablets to make bets from wherever they are in the complex.

 

Simulcasts of races from around the nation are featured for OTB (off-track betting). The casino also offers sports betting, enabling players to make wagers on a great variety of various sporting events.
