it is Sad.........and as it is the only track I have seen in person, didn't realize what a Gem of all racetracks it is.......even before the last fire and rebuild..........sure that Arlington Heights will miss the TIF $$ and wonder what will be done with....oh yeah.....casinos

 I haVe been to several tracks, but sadly, never got to Arlington.  I did hear it was a beautiful facility:

It is so sad that such a beautiful facility will be no more.

not just beatiful, but a prime racetrack in the Midwest, but gambling takes it away..if gambling is what makes racing continue.....SAD..............any idea how it is in the UK? Gambling

I missed it or would have, too.......only time I was there for racing (they had a big great Antiques show annually), a horse just dropped dead at the end of a race and they just left him there.......no medics, lifesaving.......and a long time before a Truck came and pulled him off the track to truck........very disrespectful........and I said , that's it,,,,,,no more races

Wonder if Mr D was there?
