Guys Day Out
Grab the boys and get ready for our first Guys Day Out at Arlington! It's all about cars, beer, food, and music in the park area for an afternoon packed with good times with your buddies.
For your viewing pleasure, cars from Volo Auto Museum will be on display throughout the park area and for your listening pleasure, Dave Tamkin & Company will be live on the main band stage. The 2nd Annual Hoffman Estates Police Explorer Car Show Fundraiser will also take place in the Park area today!
Guys Day Out Package includes: Unlimited Craft Beer Sampling from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (2 oz. samples), two 12 oz. craft beers, 1 hot dog, Sample cup, and General Admission to Arlington International.
Taste craft beers from Blue Moon Brewing Company, Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company, Crispin Cider Company, Fox Barrel Cider Company and more!
Don't miss out on any of the excitement on the track as horses get in the gate for the Arlington Oaks (GIII). The Arlington Oaks, $150,000 guaranteed, is a 1 1/8 mile on the main track.
Arlington Park will be offereing a series of live money handicapping contests during 2013. Each contest in the series will offer as its top prize a trip to Las Vegas to participate in a national handicapping tournament during the winter of 2014. Each contest in May - August will offer an expense-paid berth in the Horse Players World Series (or a cash prize of $1,500 if the winner should choose not to go to Las Vegas). The two-day Sept. tournament will offer as its top prize an expense-paid berth in the DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship (NHC). Prior to each contest, handicapper M. Scott McMannis will host a one-hour seminar on tournament basics as well as covering selected races from the day's live racing card.
As part of our new "Arlington University" located in the Park area, HorsePlayerNow.com handicappers Joe Kristufek and Brian W. Spencer will be on hand to conduct Learn to Win seminars as well as provide one-on-one interaction for those customers wishing to hone their handicapping skills. Arlington University will be staffed with specially trained personnel every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and holiday from Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day weekend as well as on Saturday, May 4 (Kentucky Derby Day) and Sunday, May 12 (Mother's Day).
