HAWTHORNE RACE COURSE
Hawthorne has several venerable distinctions: most historic sports venue in Illinois; 2nd longest family-run race track in the nation; and just 10 minutes from the Loop, it is also Chicago’s ‘hometown track.’ Though horseracing as a whole has admittedly declined in prominence on the national sports entertainment scene, high profile events such as The Kentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup are drawing more and more exposure and ‘red carpet’ flare.
Locally, Hawthorne has built excitement around its two marquee races: The Illinois Derby (which has produced 9 consecutive contenders for the Kentucky Derby) and the Hawthorne Gold Cup (a proven precursor for the Breeders’ Cup Classic, aka the Super Bowl of Thoroughbred Racing).
360° works with Hawthorne on myriad levels including strategic coordination of its marketing, advertising, event production, publicity and customer service.
