‘Saratoga of the Midwest’: The Arlington Experience
Some racetrackers like to call Arlington Park in the suburbs of Chicago, the Saratoga of the Midwest. While the two tracks are very different in terms of age, they do share a fun atmosphere appealing to families and people of all ages. In addition to its renowned turf course, Arlington Park is also known for its clean environment and unique attractions that bring in casual fans.
The Paulick Report's Scott Jagow and Natalie Voss spent several days at Arlington for the International Festival of Racing, and they provide a taste of what Arlington Park is all about – on an average day and during the biggest day of the year.
