New Paddock Schedule at Hawthorne

Per Illinois Racing Board mandate we will be returning to our traditional paddock beginning next week.

With the return to the traditional paddock, all horses in to race must report to their assigned stalls by their assigned time in the paddock for races. Barn D will be used as the paddock for races 1-12. If we have additional races, those horses will be assigned stalls in Barn 1.  Qualifiers will race out of Barn 1. On Saturdays we will look to avoid cards with more than 12 races as to avoid an overcrowded Barn 1 on qualifying days.

Horses receiving Lasix must be in their assigned stall no later than four hours prior to their race.  Non-Lasix horses must be in their stall no later than three hours prior to their race.

Horses will no longer be grouped together by trainer and horses stabled on the grounds at Hawthorne are no longer allowed to race out of their barn.  Any additional horses shipping in for weekend races will have to report to the ship-in barn. There will no longer be assigned ship-in stalls posted weekly.

Security will check horses in upon arrival and horses will race out of the aisle in which they are assigned.

Please direct any questions or concerns to the Illinois Racing Board
