Illinois Derby Purse Increased to $300,000

The partnership between Hawthorne Race Course and TVG for the Grade 3 Illinois Derby has allowed for the purse for the race to be increased from $250,000 to $300,000. The additional earnings potential may help top three-year-olds in their quest to qualify for the Kentucky Derby on May 7.

“The TVG Illinois Derby is our marquee race of the spring meet and we want to do everything we can to make it the most competitive race possible while continuing our run on sending winners from our race to the Derby,” stated Assistant General Manager Jim Miller. “TVG has been a great partner with Hawthorne and the additional sponsorship money is best put forth going into the purse of our Grade 3 event.”

The 54th running of the Grade 3 Illinois Derby will take place on Saturday, April 9 with entries being taken on Wednesday April 6. The race will be run as the seventh race on the Hawthorne card with a post time of 4:37 Central Time.
