The Illinois Racing Board on Tuesday approved a deal by Chicago-area track owners that will keep Arlington International Race Course open while limiting racing days in Illinois. Under the pact agreed to by Chicago-area track owners, Arlington will race 55 days instead of its usual 130. Sportsman's Park dates will jump from 73 to 90 and Hawthorne's from 73 to 84. Facing a possible shortage of horses, the tracks will race five days a week instead of the previous six.

Music Merci was awarded first place in the $516,900 Illinois Derby at Sportsman's Park Saturday when Notation, who finished a head in front of the Canadian-bred gelding, was disqualified. Jockey Gary Stevens, who rode 6-5 favorite Music Merci, complained that Notation, the California Derby winner ridden by Herb McCauley, moved into his path in the stretch. After studying the race pictures for 10 minutes, the stewards reversed the 1-2 finish of the 1 1/8-mile race and awarded the top prize of $310,140 to Music Merci.
