Sunday Track Condition Update
According to assistant general manager Jim Miller, Hawthorne’s main track was open for training as usual on Sunday morning, and it is expected to be “freeze dried and fast” for the live racing card.
The weather forecast calls for sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 20s, so the track will not get warm enough to thaw. According to Miller, the majority of the moisture in the track was squeezed out by the track crew at the conclusion of Saturday’s races.
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.
