Trackside Rockford opened today inside Don Carter Lanes, 4007 E. State St.
The off-track betting facility closed its old location just east of there at 5011 E. State St. and opened at noon today inside Don Carter Lanes, which is undergoing massive renovations to modernize and add activities.
The building has about 48,000 square feet, about 2,000 of which will be dedicated to Trackside. An additional 4,000 square feet will include a bar, billiards and more wagering services.
The new location will continue to offer wagering day and night seven days a week from Arlington Park and all Illinois racetracks, Churchill Downs Simulcast Network tracks and other major racetracks, in the U.S. and around the world.
Officials will celebrate the project at 3 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 7, with speakers from the city and local businesses.
