Racing was thriving in Illinois in the mid 70’s through the mid 90’s. IMHO former governor Quinn put the final stake in the heart of Illinois racing when he refused to sign the gambling expansion bill which would have brought slots to the tracks. CDI swooped in like vultures to buy Arlington because they knew how valuable that land is. The people of Illinois are losing a treasure with the pending demise of Arlington Park.
