Hawthorne Cancels Thursday Card

Wintry conditions ice live racing

Due to unsafe track conditions and an impending winter storm in the area, Hawthorne cancelled their live racing program for Thursday.

Steady rains fell all day Wednesday, and temperatures dropped considerably overnight. Precipitation continued during the early morning hours, and the forecast calls for 2-4 inches of snow to hit during the afternoon.

The track will also be closed for training on Friday, and a decision on the afternoon racing program will made after the conditions are accessed.

All of Thursday’s races will be brought back as “extras,” and additional races will be added to upcoming programs to make up for the cancellation.

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 and Dec. 24). The dark days are Monday and Tuesday (except Oct. 9 and Jan. 1). Post time is 1:10 p.m. daily.

Hawthorne’s races can be seen live on Horse Racing Television (HRTV). HRTV provides full, in-depth coverage of the current Hawthorne Race Course meeting, with complete post parades, and expert analysis from the network's hosts.

Hawthorne’s spring 2007 Thoroughbred meet will run February 23 thru May 3. The summer 2007 Standardbred meet will be held June 22 thru August 5. The fall 2007 Thoroughbred meet will run September 17 thru December 31.
