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!

We met some family at the Track, our 1st time. We don't like to gamble but this was a lot of fun. We had an Executive Box (17.00 ea.) It had a TV in the box, cushioned seats around a table and waiters to get your food and drinks. We were able to visit while we made our bets and... More

I finally visited AP today with my wife and it was really a very good time. The grounds are lovely and the price of admission is reasonable. Parking was free. The foot-long hotdog from the food court was actually pretty good too (which it should be given the price!) My only real complaint is that the tables in the food... More

We took our whole family to Arlington Park to celebrate my parents 50th Anniversary. The park was beautiful with the landscaping and flowers. They will let you bring coolers in of water etc except bottles and liquor. You also can bring any food in, So we brought fruit trays and some snacks since we had a party of 9 and... More

Nice track! Other things available to do besides gamble. This is a yearly event for me to go on with a group from Wisconsin. This trip there was Japan day which was interesting to see another culture. I would have to rate Arlington as my second favorite horse track though, as Del Mar (with ocean in the background) in California... More

This place is great! Fun atmosphere For the whole family but keep in mind this is a race track for legal gambling. It feels clean and while the crowds roam through the facility it never feels crowded. good food selection and about what you would expect at pron sport venue. The day I was there they had food trucks with... More

Rented a suite for my team of employees; had the buffet plus snack items and open bar. The suite was clean, comfortable and offered multiple viewing areas including an open air deck. The food was very good, not 'to die for' level, but still, very good. Open bar was well tended by an excellent bartender. Dirty plates and other utensils... More

We live locally, and seem to get here about once or twice a year. We've been here mostly for large gatherings (20 -40) people. Most recently we hosted a retirement party in the Pavilion area. The pre planning staff were very helpful to work with and tried to be sure we had all we needed. There were some issues with... More

This is a great place to spend the afternoon. There's plenty of food options if you get hungry, and plenty of races to watch and bet on. Even if you're not the betting type, the races are still incredibly fun to watch.

You don't have to be any type of gambler to go to Arlington Park and enjoy the day. The racing is certainly fun to watch, but interestingly it is also kid oriented and who can turn down watching some really beautiful horses. Pick a nice day and sit back and enjoy. Plenty of parking and very accessible from downtown via... More
