Family Day


Arli, our awesome mascot, is turning another year older and it’s time to celebrate in style! Arli has invited a handful of his mascot buddies to come out and party with him here at Arlington so come out and watch as the mascots battle it out in the always popular Prairie State Mascot Race! The mascot race is slated between the 3rd and the 4th race, slightly after 2 p.m.

After the race is over, head out to the Junior Jockey Zone as Arli & his pals will be there to sing Arli Happy Birthday and hang out from 3 p.m. - 3:45 pm. Kids can color Arli a birthday card and there will be mini-cupcakes for some lucky guests. A list of mascots in attendance will be revealed as the date draws nearer through Arlington Park’s Facebook account!
