SOUVENIR AK SAR BEN HORSE RACETRACK Omaha, NE Nebraska Cast Iron HORSE Ashtray?

Hello & Welcome!
Offered for your consideration is a souvenir from the AK SAR BEN Horse Racetrack in Omaha, Nebraska. It is a horse head made from cast iron with the AK SAR BEN logo stamped on it. It measures 7" x 8" and is elevated by three little feet on the bottom. I'm not sure what the use of this was but I'm guessing maybe an ashtray? It is in nice condition and is a nice collectible from a racetrack that closed in 1995.
Thanks for looking!
