June 1935: Omaha at Arlington Park, Chicago.









Omaha died in 1959 at the age of 27, he was buried in the Circle of Champions at the Ak-Sar-Ben racetrack. The track closed in 1995 and the land was taken over by the University of Nebraska-Omaha. Omaha's grave is next to a home economics and culinary arts classroom. When a cooking project fails, the unfortunate student is told to "Give it to Omaha" (throw it out the window). Students on their way into a test often nod toward the gravesite for good luck.
