It’s one of the surest signs of Summer! The return of racing to Arlington Park.
The 2014 season is in the swing of things. The season runs Friday, May 2nd through Sunday, September 28th with a full calendar of heart-pounding Thoroughbred Racing, Events and Entertainment. Go to http://www.arlingtonpark.com/ for calendar and complete information.
Gates open at 11:15, you can get there early and get a bite to eat, pick up a racing form and work out your strategy or just pick out the names you like. At Arlington Park you can also place bets on races at other tracks throughout the country.
There are many places within the park to purchase food and drinks. Pack a basket and head for the picnic grounds.
Children 17 and under are admitted free when accompanied by a parent or guardian. Races run rain or shine! Take the Metra, Northwest line to the Arlington Park station.
