Changes for Hawthorne’s August Schedule

Due to a shortage of horse population, the Illinois State Fairs and other County Fairs, Hawthorne has requested and received permission from the Illinois Racing Board to vacate the following Thursdays in August: August 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th. We have been assured that during these three day weeks Hawthorne will conduct as many races as possible, with the hope that with sufficient entries, we can race at least 35 or 36 races during this time period. We have been averaging about 39 races per week recently.
