Traditionally, the Kentucky Derby takes place on the first Saturday in May. The COVID-19 pandemic postponed last year’s event until September. The “Run for the Roses” returns to its regular spot in the spring tomorrow, and the Director of Publicity for Hawthorne Race Course, Jim Miller, joined Bob Sirott and Dave Eanet to preview the race and make some predictions. Jim also talked about what Hawthorne has planned for its 130th anniversary this year, and the different ways you can place your wagers on the “Fastest Two Minutes” in sports.
You can listen to the Kentucky Derby on WGN Radio tomorrow afternoon. Coverage begins at 4:00pm.
