Farewell Arlington Park (398 Views)

This upcoming Saturday will most likely be the last time there is horse racing at Arlington Park. They did not apply for 2022 dates. The property will be sold and CDI doesn’t want competition with their interest in Rivers Casino which is only about 10 miles away.

Arlington has been dead for a long time. The State of Illinois struck the first blow during the Quinn era when they wouldn’t allow slot machines at the track. This allowed the corporate monster to kill the nicest track in North America. CDI let the quality of racing plummet and nothing that runs there now even remotely resembles the glory days. I once saw Spectacular Bid race there, now I had to settle for Dom the Bomb. I will really miss the fun afternoons of live racing.

My question for everyone is which track will be next?
