"Its just going to be a lot more fun, a lot more festive this year people can come out, there’s no admission, we are just trying to gather more races so that we can have more entertainment and more fun for our guests that visit us," said Christy Harris, General Manager.

You can check out the simulcast racing, keno, and pickle cards, every day of the week at the Lincoln Race Course.
