I'm local & AP has been dropping for years. I've attended about 20 Arlington Millions over the years & last year was a pathetic lack of attendance. Didn't even seem like a big stakes day at all. Not like the old days. Was a bit sad.
I love the facility, but I only go two days a year. Million Preview day & Million day.
My understanding why AP/CDI didn't push hard on Racasino, is that they are a large shareholder @ Rivers Casino in the area. An article I read years ago, makes sense they didn't want to compete. The writing was on the walls years ago. No surprise to me. I walked out last Million, saying this was the last.
Guessing they never CDI never opens up racing in Illinois again, regardless of what they put out in the press. Another corporation fleeing Illinois.
