Prairie Meadows Racetrack & Casino Iowa Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Altoona, Iowa, celebrates its third anniversary as a casino and ninth as a Thoroughbred racetrack in 1998. Prairie Meadows is the nation's first combination Thoroughbred racetrack and slot machine casino. Prairie Meadows is open 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week and features 1,164 slot machines covering two floors. From the distinctive architecture and meticulous landscaping to the first-class service and food, Prairie Meadows is a showcase for top racing and unbeatable entertainment. Unlike the majority of gaming enterprises in Iowa which are operated by publicly held, for-profit management companies whose compensation is based on a percentage of profits, Prairie Meadows is directly managed and operated by the not-for-profit corporation RACI Inc. d/b/a Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino. This means that all profits remain in Iowa and are reinvested in our community. In the final analysis, this format provides more money for community projects so necessary and important for improving our quality of life and enhancing our economic future. All gaming operations in Iowa operate in accordance with the Iowa Code and the governing rules set forth by the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission, which is appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Iowa Senate.
