For this week's #TBT Gallery, Arlington International Racecourse was founded as Arlington Park by California businessman Harry D. "Curly" Brown. The track officially opened Oct. 13, 1927 to 20,000 spectators. Jockey Joe Bollero, who later became a successful trainer, rode Luxembourg to victory in the first race ever run at Arlington Park.
