ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. &ndash; Thomas Tomillo, a veteran Chicago trainer, died Wednesday night at Alexian Brothers Hospital in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. Tomillo, 66, was suffering from pancreatic cancer, according to jockey agent Kenny Danna, a longtime Tomillo associate.\r\nTomillo was born the son of a jockey in Chicago. He owned horses in the mid-1960s, and scored his first win as a trainer in 1971. Working almost exclusively in the claiming business, Tomillo, a winner of 1,731 races during his career, managed to capture three training titles at Hawthorne Race Course. In the early 2000s, Tomillo had great success with a claim named Talknow, but his best horse was Lord of the Game, whom he and owner Bill Slevin claimed for $10,000 out of Lord of the Game&rsquo;s career debut. Lord of the Game went on to win multiple graded stakes, and nearly ran in the Breeders&rsquo; Cup Classic in 2005.\r\nBoth a wake on Friday between 3-9 p.m. and a visitation, on Saturday between 8 and 9:30 a.m. are to be held at Galewood Chapel, 1857 N. Harlem Avenue in Chicago. Tomillo&rsquo;s funeral is 9:30 Saturday morning at Saint William Church, 2600 N. Sayre Ave. Chicago.
