Please click in order to see the Infield at Arlington International Race Track
The area in the photograph is called "the infield" and it literally is "off the beaten path" unless the race is a TURF race (the horses run on the grass). Certain horses do very well on the turf; others, hate the turf and only race well on the dirt track.
The Infield at Arlington International Race Course is really beautiful. It is landscaped so well, and the small pond in the middle adds to the beauty. The TOTE board is found in the infield and can be seen from any seat in the clubhouse or grandstands.
In this photo, the starting apparatus is on the Infield because the next race is to be run on the Turf.
Visit the Forest Preserve. This picture was taken in Schaumburg (next to Arlington Heights) A relaxing place and good for viewing the fall colours. There are bike trails and walking paths. Just beware of the goose droppings
