Described as "the most beautiful track in America", Arlington began Thoroughbred racing on October 13, 1927, when more than 20,000 fans braved the cold weather to celebrate the event in high style. Since then, Arlington International has become a social destination and perfect summer hangout to watch and wager on the amazing sport of Thoroughbred horse racing! Arlington offers beautiful venues for everything from corporate outings to reunions to weddings, and it's the ideal spot for groups of friends to catch-up, watch the ponies and meet new people. From Miller Lite Party in the Park on Friday, to Miller Lite Horses & Hops on Saturdays, to Sunday Family Days presented by Daily Herald and Lipton Iced Tea, it's always a great time!

Although it can get a bit pricey and crowded, it is a great experience for the whole family. Even if betting isn't your thing, it is still fun to be a part of the energy and excitement. There are several options to avoid the crowds and find some air conditioning in hot summer days. The grounds are very well maintained.... More

What a wonderful place to spend a day! The facility is beautiful and the people who work there are friendly and helpful. Bring the kids! They will enjoy watching the horses, too! It's a great place to have a family reunion. Pick a spot on the lawn and have everyone bring a blanket. There are also picnic benches, too. Sundays... More

Pick a sunny Sunday and head to the track! It's clean, it's fun, and you could win some big money! Bring a blanket and hang out on the grass. Always a fun time (even if I don't win).

Great place to go on Friday's. Races start at 3:15PM which works well after work. World Class Race Venue. There are not many left like this. Free parking, $3.00 Draft's. Indoor/outdoor seating plus a picnic area is great for singles, couples, and family's. Go enjoy and possibly win some on Sunny day in IL.

Have been here twice now. Once for Mother's Day (which was crowded...but still nice! Roses for all the moms!) and one time this summer. It was not as crowded on just a regular Sunday. Easy to find bleacher seats and make bets and walk around all day! The Bloody Marys are excellent, if you're in to that!! Fun to go... More

We have been attending the Arlington Million for the last 4 yrs or so and have had a very pleasant experience every time. The staff are very helpful and ready to please. The downfall is the food vendors aren't that great but their prices are outrageous. $4,00 for a bottle of water for example. $6.50 for a beer. $12.00 for... More

Truly a treasure to thoroughbred racing and fans. But what the non race ran may not realize it's a beautiful place to spend an afternoon with entertainment. Restaurants everywhere and clean natural fun.

What a beautiful racetrack. We went on a Saturday with my son and his family ( wife and 3 children under 14). There were 2 bands playing between races. Picnic tables. And several restaurants. Bring in your own food and enjoy it at one of the many picnic tables available. We all had a great time. A nice family outing.
