RAZO SCORES CAREER WIN NO. 2,500

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (May 25, 2007) – Jockey Eusebio Razo Jr. notched his 2,500th career victory in Friday’s first race at Arlington Park astride K. K. & V. D. Jayaraman’s Pocket Bandit for trainer Chris Richard.

The Mexican-born Razo, 41, has been a mainstay on the Chicago racing scene since the early 1980s. Razo finished second in last year’s Arlington Park jockey standings.

“We got to this point so it’s on to the next one,” the modest Razo said. “I’m glad I did it here at Arlington where I’ve won a lot of races and I’m glad I did it on one of Chris’ horses since he’s been a big supporter of mine and we’ve really been doing well together.”

Arlington Park – the Chicago area’s premier Thoroughbred racetrack located in Arlington Heights, Ill. – will run a 94-day meet in 2007 from Friday, May 4 through Sunday, Sept. 16. Arlington Park, whose parent company is Churchill Downs Incorporated (Nasdaq: CHDN), also operates nine off-track, simulcast-wagering facilities: Trackside Arlington Park (Arlington Heights), Trackside Chicago, Trackside Quad City Downs (East Moline), Trackside Rockford, Trackside Waukegan, Fat Sam’s Bar & Grill featuring Trackside OTB in Lockport, Lucky’s featuring Trackside OTB in South Elgin, Nicolino’s featuring Trackside OTB in McHenry and The Inferno featuring Trackside OTB in South Beloit.
