"Arlington Park employees received formal notice over the weekend that they will be laid off at the end of the race meet, reports the Chicago Daily Herald. The Arlington Heights, Ill. track was listed for sale by parent company Churchill Downs earlier this year, which the layoff notice indicates “will result in the closure of Arlington International Racecourse.”

Pretty much no way they will sell to any kind of horse racing concern.   

Condolences to all for whom that track is somewhat "local". :(     

I would most likely move away if I could no longer go watch live thoroughbreds at Oaklawn, so I know how that must feel.
