Family Day at Arlington Park is the best way for your family to spend a Sunday afternoon together. We’ve teamed up with some exciting partners to bring you family entertainment throughout the racing season. So pack up the kids and head out for a day of excitement with live racing, pony rides and a petting zoo! Children 17 and under are admitted free when accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Today’s Family Day (brought to you by Pepsi and the Daily Herald) features The Field Museum.
The holiday weekend fun continues as The Field Museum showcases their new exhibition, The Horse! Bite, tear and chew with Terrific Teeth, create your own cave painting, and don’t miss a special horse-themed story time with Nili Yelin, the Storybook Mom!
Be sure to stop by the Park area for free pony rides and a petting zoo from 12pm – 4pm. It will be an experience your kids will remember for a lifetime!

Arlington Park continues in its efforts to promote fan education with ‘Learn to Win’ seminars to be held in the track’s Park area. Hosted by Daily Herald and horseplayernow.com racing analyst Joe Kristufek and sidekick Brian Spencer, these informal sessions will take place on selected weekend and holiday dates. Kristufek and Spencer will teach race goers the basics of reading the racing program as well as how to construct wagers that give them the best chance to be successful at the races. In addition, they will answer any questions that fans may have when it comes to handicapping races.
