ANTHONY, Kan. (AP) — A century-old racetrack in south-central Kansas will ride into history Friday, when all of its equipment and assets are auctioned off. The Anthony Downs racetrack, which opened in 1904, closed in 2009 after losing simulcasting money when larger tracks in Kansas closed. KAKE-TV reports a group of people who lived near the quarter-mile track bought the property. The auction is being held to clear the area for potential development. Everything left at the track will be auctioned, including grandstands, fences, horse stalls and barns. Auctioneer Brandon Gerber says the auction was scheduled so people can buy a piece of the track, which was an important part of the city's history and economy.
