Update from Arlington: FAQs

Q: When will racing and events begin at Arlington and when can I buy tickets?
A: Taking into consideration the continued public health crisis posed by the Coronavirus pandemic and the specific impact the virus has had on Illinois, racing at Arlington has been postponed. We currently do not have an official schedule of race dates at this time. We hope to make an announcement later this spring. As such, ticket sales for 2020 have been placed on hold.

Q: Can I visit a Trackside OTB location? How can I wager?
A: Following Governor JB Pritzker’s order that all restaurants and bars in IL be closed, all of Arlington’s Trackside Off-Track Wagering facilities are closed. We will evaluate our options to reopen when we understated the timing in which the Governor will lift those restrictions.
