I went to Arlington Park in 1995 or so, and I was shocked at how beautiful the facility was. Sure, out here the mountains at Santa Anita and the beach at Del Mar are nice, but as far as facilities go, Arlington Park was a lot nicer. I went with my late Uncle John, a long time Illinois horse player from the 60's and 70's, and as I recall I hit two IRS signers and some nice win bets at good odds, and made him proud. Sam Houston Park, which was fairly new at the time I visited around the same era, was also a very nice facility at the time- not sure what it's like now.
