If you are a fan of horse racing and dog racing this is the track for you to visit. Both tracks at one location!

Woodlands Racing Track includes a Dining Room…. fully enclosed and air-conditioned 3-story greyhound grandstand overlooking the track, 3-story horse grandstand overlooking the track, and an air-conditioned simulcast floor in the grandstand. That’s right, nearly 700,000 square feet of spacious grounds to make your racing experience a pleasurable one.

In the wooded rolling hills of Northeast Kansas, Woodlands Racing has built a racing legend. This first-of-its-kind complex in the mid-west houses separate greyhound and horse racing facilities on the same site. Each track has its own grandstand and support buildings while sharing parking. The festive 3 story grandstands are capped with “racing green”, standing seam, mansard roofs. Large round top windows give the entrance stately appearances.

A total of 48 separate buildings make up the racing facility. The greyhound track has a special silt material for the racing surface and a buried hot water track heating system for winter month operation. This is the first track in the nation to be constructed with a different radius at each end.

The Woodlands brings a new dimension of entertainment as it beautifully enhances the area.
