GEORGE HARRISON TRIBUTE
Music maven Gary Duch (who also serves as Hawthorne's Racing Secretary) with the help of trainer Les Ahrens, and the rest of the racing office crew and various other trainers, put together a touching tribute to the legendary George Harrison who passed away Thursday following a long battle with cancer.
With the exception of the Colonel Powell Stakes, Duch named each of the races on Sunday's card after a George Harrison song.
The races were named as follows:
1st My Sweet Lord
Thanks, George. We'll miss you.
CHRIS DORRIS' FIRST WIN
Trainer Chris Dorris, the 24-year-old son of long-time trainer Tom Dorris earned the first victory of his career in Friday's fourth race. Lazy Sahana, with Larry Sterling Jr. in the irons, drew off to win by over 11 lengths. Way to go!
LEADING JOCK SCORES THREE
Shane Laviolette, currently the leading jock at Hawthorne, scored with three winners on Thursday. He took the first with Dania Bay ($10.00), the fourth with Dancing Taylor ($8.20), and the seventh with American Lateeno ($8.60).
HANDICAPPING CONTEST BEGINS
The first December qualifier begins with the fourth race on Saturday. Just pick two winners from races four through nine. Entry blanks will be available prior to the fourth race.
