ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. — Jockey Jareth Loveberry jumped at the chance to race at Arlington International Racecourse. He moved his family from Michigan to Glen Ellyn to be nearby, and became the winningest jockey on the track for the past two years. Now, with the track expected to close, he doesn’t know where he will go.

Having just recovered from a concussion and bruised ribs in a recent fall from a horse, Loveberry came back this week in hope of racing one more time on the track’s last day Saturday. He’s working to join the names of legendary jockeys who rode there, from Earlie Fires to Pat Day to Willie Shoemaker.
