The Most Beautiful Horse Racing Track In America Is About To Be Closed Forever

Arlington Park in Arlington Heights, a suburb of Chicago will run its last race late Saturday afternoon. It is the victim of corporate greed. Churchill Downs Inc. the company that bought Arlington Park some years ago has decided to sell the land the track sits on for "development." In the likelihood that the track will be torn down by next spring when the next racing season for Arlington would start, the track did not apply for 2022 racing dates. The track never failed, but the lack of casino games which so many other tracks now use to raise their racing purse values has put Arlington at a competitive disadvantage in attracting more horse to race there. Churchill Downs refused to allow casino games at Arlington because they own a casino in the same general geographic area and said Arlington would be competition to their other property.
In any case , the nicest race track in America has hours to live.
