Arlington Park, also known as Arlington International Racecourse, was developed the same year that Charles Lindbergh flew the first transatlantic flight. The track has attracted millions of vistors over the years, many of whom have been royalty, sports stars, entertainers and generations of horse racing fans. 

Arlington has hosted some of the top names in racing history including Citation, Secretrariat, John Henry and Cigar. Legendary jockeys including Bill Shoemaker, Pat Day, Laffit Pincay, Jr., Jerry Bailey, Eddie Arcaro and Arlington's all-time winningest rider, Earlie Fires. 

Trainers Charlie Whittingham, Ben Jones, D. Wayne Lukas and Bob Baffert have all raced at the track and still come throughout the summer for Arlington's famed International Festival of Racing. 

The track hosts several graded stakes throughout the racing season with their most popular race being the Arlington Million. The race is 1 1/4 miles for three year old horses and up. It is raced each year in August on the turf course. The race was introduced in 1981 by Joe Joyce. The winner receives 60% of the purse and the Arlington Million Trophy. John Henry won the race twice in 1981 and 1984.
