"The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission has approved more than eight million dollars in renovations for two projects at the Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Altoona.

... They also plan to spend $2.7 million to renovate the clubhouse on the fourth floor that is used for racing.

'We are going to completely redo it in colors, carpet, wall coverings, monitors — just completely redo the clubhouse on the east and west side,' [CEO] Palmer says.
