Arlington International Racecourse Statement on ADW


ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (Nov. 7, 2013) – Arlington International announced today that there was no action on the various proposals in extending advance deposit wagering (ADW) that would provide funding to the Illinois Racing Board and allow a full racing schedule to be conducted in 2014. Arlington International and TwinSpires.com, both owned by Churchill Downs Incorporated, are committed to extending ADW during the next legislative session.

Churchill Downs Incorporated has invested $240 million in the development of ADW technologies and establishing the state’s leading ADW company. ADW is the only source of revenue that has shown year over year growth and increased wagering revenue to tracks and purses for owners.

Arlington International and its parent company Churchill Downs Incorporated are committed to preserving jobs in the racing industry from revenues that the tracks and horsemen receive from ADW.

Arlington International Racecourse – the Chicago area’s premier Thoroughbred racetrack located in Arlington Heights, Ill. – will open its 2014 meeting on Friday, May 2. Arlington International Racecourse, whose parent company is Churchill Downs Incorporated (Nasdaq: CHDN), also operates 11 off-track, simulcast-wagering facilities in Arlington Heights, Aurora, Chicago, East Moline, Waukegan, Villa Park, Rockford, South Elgin, McHenry, Orland Hills and Hodgkins. Information on Arlington International Racecourse can be found online at www.arlingtonpark.com, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/arlingtonpark and www.facebook.com/tracksideotb, and on Twitter at @Arlington_Park for the latest happenings, @arlingtonracing for the latest racing news and @tracksideotb for all things pertaining to off-track wagering.
