    A slew of other trophies will also be present, including Loyola’s regional championship trophy from their historic run to the Final Four earlier this year. Northwestern University’s last two bowl game trophies will also be at the track, as will the 1960 Kentucky Derby trophy that was won by Venetian Way.
