Arlington Park to Hold DRF/NTRA Qualifier Sept. 8

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (July 11, 2007) – Arlington Park will offer handicappers from throughout the Midwest and nationwide one more chance to qualify for one of three berths into the DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship to be held in Las Vegas in January 2008.

Team Arlington Park berths will be awarded at a qualifying tournament to be held at the track on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2007. Registration for the contest costs $175 and can be completed online at

Format for the popular tournaments will closely mirror the format used by the NTRA in the national championship where contestants will make mythical $10 win and place wagers on six mandatory races and six races that may be chosen by the contestant from a list of selected racetracks. The mandatory races will be from Arlington Park’s live card, which will be highlighted by three Grade III races: the $150,000 Arlington Matron Handicap, the $200,000 Pucker Up Stakes, and the $150,000 Arlington-Washington Lassie. The person with the highest total bankroll after all 12 wagers have been made will be deemed the contest winner.

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.
