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!

Love ❤️ watching the horses run. The park is always clean and the service is always pleasant. Yesterday they had Ferris B. Day off theme so that was fun. They also had some interesting entertainers perform in between races.

This is a great family outing. They allow you to bring in food and drinks which keeps the day affordable. Buy your tickets ahead online to save a bit of money too. Been going for years with my family and it doesn't disappoint.

Located in Arlington Heights close to the train and rte 53. Sundays offer special attractions for little ones. It is just a nice clean place for gatherings. Check their website for specials. Great Bloody Mary's and Chicago blend popcorn are the best.
