Churchill Downs Communications | 08/06/2012 #

Arlington Million Day on Saturday, August 18 is Arlington Park's biggest party of the year, and for 2012 the track is kicking things up a notch by offering a special Million VIP Lounge in the International Room.

Arlington Park is partnering with Global Adrenaline to convert the Internatinoal Room, which overlooks the racecourse with a floor-to-ceiling view of the race, into an exclusive VIP Lounge to provide an all-inclusive club experience.

Highlighted by DJ Summer Altice — a high energy DJ who heats up nights at the Playboy Mansion, and performed at some of the top nightclubs in the world — and a premium club atmosphere, this new Arlington Million experience will be truly unique.

"The Arlington Million is an event of International stature and our new Million VIP Lounge will offer an experience like no other combining one of the most important races on the International calendar with spectacular entertainment," said Arlington Park General Manager Tony Petrillo.

"Global Adrenaline is honored to partner with Arlington Park for the iconic Arlington Million," said Global Adrenaline's owner Christian Banach. "We are excited to bring a high-energy upscale club environment to the track and look forward to making the Arlington Million Illinois' Kentucky Derby."

Tickets for the Million VIP lounge, which can be purchased online at, cost $200 apiece and include admission into the Million VIP Lounge, a 4½-hour premium open bar, hors d'oeuvres and a light buffet, a Red Carpet entrance, private mutuelclerks, an outdoor viewing area, a silent auction, and admission to an exclusive after-party.

A special VIP table reservation package that includes seating for eight, bottle service and a private server is available for purchase as well.
