It's where the author was told was a horse track at Arlington Road and Greensburg Road at the
end of Caston Road.

A person from Akron reported that:

My dad and uncles used tell stories of how they would go to the horse track on south Arlington
to watch, as they put it, the ponies. From what I gathered it was similar to Ascot and was owned
by the same group. They used to say they raced buggies. I assume would be harness. Now this is from
the 30's up to WWII when they all went off to war. The photo shows what looks like Arlington and
that would be the area we would drive by and my pops would tell us there was a track there. No way
to verify this as they have all passed.
