“‘Arlington Live’ is going to give our fans an inside look at both horse racing and one of the best sports venues in Chicago – Arlington International Racecourse,” said Adam Delevitt, program director at AM-1000. “We’re very excited to offer our audience this sort of behind-the-scenes access and expertise.”
