our company outing this summer was an afternoon at the arlington park, an international horse race track located in arlington heights, a suburb of chicago.  it was a gorgeous afternoon.  my co-workers brought their families and our little one had fun running around with the kids. we watched several races which was exciting and fun.  none of us were really into betting but two of my colleagues did for fun. one won seven bucks for a two-dollar bet.  not bad!

we all had a great time!

arlington international was the site of the first thoroughbred race with a million-dollar purse in 1981 – wikipedia

    I have never been to a live horse race. It looks like a fun day and great captures of the action.

    Which one is TJ? I’ve been to some horse races when I was a kid. I even had a bet and won a little

    It is always fun out there, I remember, years back, we used to hang around there and do some betting, actually won once! (with Minerva, Papa, Cocoy and Conway), those were the fun days!
