STATEMENT FROM ARLINGTON PARK PRESIDENT ROY ARNOLD
We are extremely pleased that the Illinois Racing Board’s (IRB) investigation found that Arlington’s racing surface is ‘remarkably consistent and uniform’ and that their expert observed that no aspect of the track is unsafe and that he remarked positively upon the knowledge and abilities of Arlington track superintendent Javier Barajas. This verifies what our expert Joe King concluded and what we have believed all along.
We are also very appreciative of the efforts of the IRB and their expert in addressing this critical issue as quickly as they have. Arlington Park will continue to cooperate fully with the Racing Board to address all issues concerning the safety of the horses and jockeys who race at our track.
