The Illinois Racing Board is threatening to shut down the Arlington International Racecourse. They could deny racing dates for 2020 if Churchill Downs doesn’t demonstrate a commitment to racing within a week. The board met yesterday and designated a three-member committee to hear any proposals Churchill may have. This comes after the racing giant didn’t apply for a gaming license at Arlington under a new state law.
