Described as "the most beautiful track in America", Arlington began Thoroughbred racing on October 13, 1927, when more than 20,000 fans braved the cold weather to celebrate the event in high style. Since then, Arlington International has become a social destination and perfect summer hangout to watch and wager on the amazing sport of Thoroughbred horse racing! Arlington offers beautiful venues for everything from corporate outings to reunions to weddings, and it's the ideal spot for groups of friends to catch-up, watch the ponies and meet new people. From Miller Lite Party in the Park on Friday, to Miller Lite Horses & Hops on Saturdays, to Sunday Family Days presented by Daily Herald and Lipton Iced Tea, it's always a great time!

The place has a lot to do. There is so much going on that you will have fun. Too bad you cant be open year round.

I really like the availability of computers to place and redeem bets. However, the lines for the Tellers move quickly and enough warning is given before the start of each race.

I have to say that we were very regular visitors to Arlington Park for many years before Churchill Downs took it over. You could go and enjoy a day of racing with reasonable pricing. Now they over charge for everything including entrance fees! You have...More

Labor Day racing wasn't too packed (likely because it was overcast). The online ticket and program purchase made admission easy. Be ready to stop before you purchase your tickets so your large bags and backpacks can be searched and tagged. We each carried in a...More
