Hawthorne Cancels Friday Card
Wintry conditions ice live racing for second consecutive day
Due to a winter storm that is expected to drop up to ten inches of snow in the area on Friday, Hawthorne has cancelled their live racing program.
This is the second consecutive card Hawthorne has lost due to wintry weather conditions, and it is the third cancellation of the fall meet. Racing was suspended on Thursday, Nov. 16 due to high winds.
According to Hawthorne officials, the track crew will work the surface overnight, and it will be open for training from 6 to 9 a.m. on Saturday.
Saturday’s local forecast calls for sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 30s.
All of the Thursday and Friday races will be brought back as “extras”, and additional races will be added to upcoming programs to make up for the cancellations.
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.
