Racing & Wagering

Arlington University

Continuing as a leader in fan education, Arlington International Racecourse is expanding Arlington University for 2014!  Our expansion starts with a new permanent campus outside on the apron level next to Mr. D’s patio. 

This new location is dedicated to providing the ultimate guest interaction experience.  Coupled with increasing the number of expert professors on hand, Arlington University will be your BEST BET for making your day a winner.

Introduced in 2013, Arlington University is committed to all race fans alike and played a hands-on role in educating thousands of race goers on the ins-and-outs of betting.  Our informative professors are here to better serve you in making an educated decision with your wagers.  New or old to racing, we are here for you!

Arlington University’s main campus will be open Thursday – Sunday, weather permitting beginning 30 minutes prior to the day’s first race. Stop by and see what is new for 2014!
