‘It’s A Reality Now’: Arlington Issues Layoff Notices To Employees

Arlington Park employees received formal notice over the weekend that they will be laid off at the end of the race meet, reports the Chicago Daily Herald. The Arlington Heights, Ill. track was listed for sale by parent company Churchill Downs earlier this year, which the layoff notice indicates “will result in the closure of Arlington International Racecourse.”

Layoffs are expected to begin on Sept. 25, the final day of racing.

Churchill has been evaluating offers for Arlington Park’s 326-acre property since June 16, but Nick Micaletti, business agent for Teamsters Local 727, doesn’t expect CDI will sell to horse racing interests.

“It’s a reality now, whereas before it was, well, hopefully somebody comes in and buys it and does the right things and helps Illinois horse racing,” Micaletti told the Daily Herald.
