Arlington Park in Arlington Heights, IL

23 July 2008 No Comment

Over two months ago, I wondered why I never thought of watching live horse racing. Today, I finally decided to drive to Arlington Park to watch the races during my lunch (two) hour(s).

The drive to the track was 15 minutes from the office. Since only 8 races were on the program today, I could watch 4-5 races and still be back at the office in a reasonable amount of time (plus with my laptop and Arlington Park’s wireless network I could work during the 30 minute downtime between each race).

Admission to Arlington Park is $7. They have a food court with the normal variety of food to select from – tacos, hamburgers and pizza. However, it tastes better than regular ballpark food.

In the second race I won an exacta box as Papa won and Inner Light placed. Neither my luck nor the risk of my bets was nearly as good for the rest of the day.
