Kicks Off with $5,000 Mystery Voucher on Saturday, Jan. 27

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (Jan. 15, 2001) - Arlington Park announced the kickoff of their new Twin Spires Club fan loyalty and rewards program, which goes into effect today. The Twin Spires Club is part of a national program with Churchill Downs and replaces Arlington's former program, the A-Club. All A-Club members who were active in 2000, have been automatically transferred into the Twin Spires Club.

"We are pleased to offer the great benefits associated with Arlington Park and Churchill Downs to our loyal fans," said Scott Mordell, Arlington Park's chief executive officer. "The Twin Spires Club enables fans to enjoy the sport of racing in new and better ways."

As part of the program's introduction, active members will receive their new cards by mail followed by an additional mailing with an invitation to collect a free Mystery Mutuel Wagering Voucher by visiting any one of Arlington's five OTB locations or the Louisville, Ky. Sports Spectrum on Saturday, Jan. 27. One voucher will have a value of $5,000, while all others will be worth at least $2 and could be $50, $25, $10 or $5. Arlington's OTB locations are -- Arlington Trackside, Mud Bug OTB (Chicago), Quad Cities Betting Parlor, Arlington in Rockford and Arlington in Waukegan.

The Twin Spires Club will offer many exciting new innovations and improved benefits. In addition to being part of the national program available at Arlington Park, Arlington's five OTBs, Churchill Downs, the Louisville Sports Spectrum and Calder Race Course in Florida later this year, member benefits include:

  • Improved rewards with immediate redemption
  • Added prizes from the Kentucky Derby and other participating tracks
  • Higher points for wagers on Arlington Park and Churchill Downs Simulcast Network tracks
  • Additional mailings, emails, contests and special offers

As part of the transition, members may use their A-Club card for wagering through Jan. 26, 2001.

Starting Jan. 27, all members must use their Twin Spires Club card. Any former A-Club member who did not receive a Twin Spires Club card or anyone wishing to join may sign up for their free membership at any participating location. In addition, members can verify their points balance at the Twin Spires Club center at all locations.

Twin Spires Club is the player-reward program at Churchill Downs, Arlington Park and their OTBs. Members earn points and benefits each time they wager at participating locations, which are: Churchill Downs, Louisville Sports Spectrum, Arlington Park, Arlington Trackside, Mud Bug OTB, Quad Cities Betting Parlor, Arlington in Rockford and Arlington in Waukegan.
