TRAINER WAYNE CATALANO BETTERS OWN SINGLE-SEASON MARK

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (Sept. 26, 2010) – Trainer Wayne Catalano bettered his own single-season training record of 74 victories set in 2007 when he saddled his 75th winner of the meet on closing day Sunday, Sept. 26 when Greg Besinger’s Summer Upcountry captured the fourth race on the card.

“It’s great to break the record,” Catalano said following the milestone victory. “I’m happy to do it for my team. They work real hard and it meant a lot to them. I want to thank the owners who supply me with the horses. The run we’ve been on has been great and we’ve gotten a lot of good support.”

Catalano is well on his way to earning his sixth straight Arlington Park training title and his ninth crown here overall. The 54-year-old native of New Orleans is now second leading trainer of all-time at Arlington with 811 victories – still well behind all-time leader Richard Hazelton who retired earlier this year with 1,181 local tallies.

Arlington Park – the Chicago area’s premier Thoroughbred racetrack located in Arlington Heights, Ill. – will run a 91-day meet in 2010 from Thursday, April 29 through Sunday, Sept. 26. Arlington Park, whose parent company is Churchill Downs Incorporated (Nasdaq: CHDN), also operates 11 off-track, simulcast-wagering facilities: Trackside Arlington Park (Arlington Heights), Trackside Chicago, Trackside Quad City Downs (East Moline), Trackside Waukegan, Shooters Bar & Grill at Don Carter Lanes featuring Trackside Rockford, Fat Sam’s Bar & Grill featuring Trackside OTB in Lockport, Lucky’s featuring Trackside OTB in South Elgin, Nicolino’s featuring Trackside OTB in McHenry, Tad’s Sports Bar & Grill featuring Trackside OTB in South Beloit, Salerno-Pincente Ristorante featuring Trackside OTB in Hodgkins and Sundance Saloon featuring Trackside OTB in Waukegan.
