Family Day, Junior Jockey Club Return for 2009 Season

| Churchill Downs Communications | 04/14/2009 #

One of the best ways for a family to spend a Sunday afternoon together is at Arlington Park. Every Sunday from May 24 through Sept. 6 is a Family Day, which returns for the 2009 season with new themes that include partnerships with area sports teams including the Schaumburg Flyers and the Chicago Fire; area attractions such as Legoland, DuPage Children Museum and Brookfield Zoo; and three "family friendly" concerts.

Also on Sundays, children can sign up and participate in Arlington Park's Junior Jockey Club, which is open to kids 12 and under. The Junior Jockey Club, which is free to join, educates children about Arlington Park and horse racing through hands-on activities and giveaways. Children 17 and under are always admitted free to Arlington Park. Post time on Sundays throughout the season is at 1 p.m.
