Arlington Park Opens Today: Thu, April 29
Today is opening day at Arlington Park – Chicagoland’s premiere horse racing venue. Hawthorne Racecourse (Chicago’s other horse racing venue) completed their spring session this past Sunday to make way for the summer session at Arlington Park.
However, instead of driving to Arlington Heights, my plan is to attend the Chicago Cubs game. First pitch is at 1:20 pm.
For the third day in a row, the Kane County Cougars are playing at the same time as the Cubs. But if you are out in the western suburbs and want to attend a baseball game today – the Cougars game starts at noon.
