WGN-TV Chicago to Show Illinois Derby

WGN-TV Chicago will provide live coverage of the 55th running of the Illinois Derby from Hawthorne Race Course on Saturday, April 7th from 5:00-6:00pm.  “WGN Sports is excited to have Hawthorne Race Course as a new partner,” said Marty Wilke, WGN-TV vice president and general manager.  “The Illinois Derby is one of Chicago’s Very Own historic sporting events and we look forward to showcasing this great race.”

 

Hosted by WGN Sports’ Dan Roan, coverage will feature the race as well as expert guests from Hawthorne Race Course.  “I firmly believe that horse racing is having a resurgence in the general market and that a powerhouse station like WGN is getting behind Illinois' most important race is further evidence of that," said Tim Carey, president and general manager of Hawthorne Race Course.  "The Kentucky Derby had its largest attendance ever last year and our Illinois Derby is the only area prep race for the most famous horserace in the world.  We've sent a dozen contenders to Kentucky in the last 10 years so if you want to see one of this year's Kentucky Derby horses live, you have to come to Hawthorne or tune into WGN-TV."
