$25,000 CHI-CAL Pick Four starts July 11

Stickney, IL – Every Wednesday evening beginning on July 11, 2007, Hawthorne Race Course and CalExpo will guarantee a $25,000 pool for the CHI-CAL Pick Four. The $1 minimum wager will comprise the last two races of the evening at both Hawthorne and CalExpo.

If nobody completes a perfect pick four ticket, a consolation payoff of 25 percent of the pool will be awarded to the player or players who select the most winners in the four-race sequence. The rest of the money will carry over to the following Wednesday.

There will be a mandatory payout on Wednesday, August 1, the last week of the Hawthorne Summer Harness Meet.

This will be the first time Hawthorne and CalExpo have teamed up to offer this wager. In years past, Balmoral and CalExpo have had success with the CHI-CAL Pick Four, and Joe Scurto, Hawthorne’s Director of Marketing, sees no reason not to expect similar results this time around. "It’s a good sum of money we’re pledging, and when you can win thousands for the price of a buck, we think it’s a nice opportunity for horseplayers."

Hawthorne presents an 11-race program on Wednesday evenings. The CHI-CAL Pick Four will begin with the 10th race, estimated post time around 10:20 pm Central.

Hawthorne Race Course presents live harness beginning on June 22 and concluding on August 4. During this time only Mondays will be a dark day for our live program. As always, Hawthorne will be open for simulcasting 7 days a week. We are located at 3501 S. Laramie Avenue, Cicero, IL, 60804. Call (708) 780-3700 or visit the Web site at
