ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (April 7, 2003) -- Chicago's best Mother's Day tradition returns to Arlington Park after a two-year hiatus. For the first time since 2000, mothers can celebrate "their" day with family members during a festive day at the track.
"We're thrilled to provide a great way for families to spend time together on Mother's Day at Arlington Park," said Arlington Park Vice President of Marketing Carl Schloessman. "It has been a great tradition at Arlington and we are pleased to bring back that tradition this year.
"Families can enjoy a wonderful brunch at a beautiful location while taking in the excitement of Thoroughbred racing," added Schloessman. "There will be roses for the moms as well as children's activities and strolling musicians to help make it a special kind of Mother's Day."
On Mother's Day, Sunday, May 11, brunch reservations for any size group are available in Arlington Park's International Room. This special brunch package includes buffet and bar, admission and a Daily Racing Guide for $50 per adult and $25 for children (ages 4 to 11), with children 3 and under for free.
