Marquez Avoids Injury Following Fall

Pick Six Pool Swells, Favorites Dominate Wager

Carlos Marquez Jr. was treated and released from Loyola Hospital in Maywood after being tossed from his mount following the running of Hawthorne’s fifth race on Saturday. Marquez suffered an upper leg laceration and some bruising as a result of being thrown to the track by his mount Arteliaco past the finish line.

“The precautionary X-rays came back negative,” said Marquez’s agent Lindy McDaniel. “He’s a little sore. He’s a game time decision (to ride on Sunday).”

With $86,057 already in the carryover, and $120,501 bet into it, after takeout Hawthorne’s Pick Six pool exceeded $176,000. On paper it appeared as though it would be difficult to hit, but when the dust settled, five of the six winners were favorites (all at 2-1 or less) with only ninth race victor Noah’s Cat returning a square win price (9-1). Winning $2 Pick Six tickets returned $4,823.00.

The 2006 fall Thoroughbred meet at Hawthorne Race Course runs September 15 through January 1 with live racing five days per week – Wednesday through Sunday (except Nov. 23). The dark days are Monday and Tuesday (except Oct. 9 and Jan.1). Post time on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday is 1:10 p.m. Friday post time through November 17 is 3 p.m., at which time it will revert back to 1:10 p.m. for the remainder of the meet.
