Overview

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!

What a great venue!! I think people take for granted that we have a world class race track right in our back yard. Wonderful place to bring your family and spend the day. Easy parking. Great facility.

Was there for a special event so can't say anything about the ponies. Very nice layout. The 3rd floor dress code was waived for the event. If you have the clothes go up there. There's a Metra station too.

Beautiful racetrack in a wonderful setting. On a clear day you can even see the skyline. It attracts some big stake races and is known for the Arlington Million. It is a Churchill Downs property. We get a season pass, we like it so much.

Arlington Park is all about horse racing and having a fun time. You can stand at the rail and cheer your pick or enjoy the races from a reserved box seat. I'm not a gambler but even I place some bets while enjoying an outing...More
