The winner's circle at Arlington Park was graced by a very special visitor Saturday - The Stanley Cup.
Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville brought the biggest prize in hockey along with him to Arlington Park as part of a city-wide publicity tour. Earlier in the day, Quenneville had thrown out the first pitch at Wrigley Field.
After spending the early part of the card in the clubhouse, both The Cup and Head Coach Quenneville posed for pictures in the winner's circle with Arlington Park staff and jockeys. The coach then raised the silver cup triumphantly over his head to the delight of racing fans in the stands. The pictures showed up soon after on the Arlington Facebook page, which you should definitely "Like" if you haven't already. Arlington is gearing up for the 31st running of its signature race, the Arlington Million, on Aug. 17.
