Tetrick Comes To Hawthorne on Night of Champions
Stickney, IL – Sometimes the great ones do come home. . . at least for a few hours.
The nation's leading harness driver, Tim Tetrick, is expected to arrive in Chicago shortly after the conclusion of Hambletonian Day at the Meadowlands to drive at Hawthorne Race Course Saturday night, August 4.
On Hawthorne’s Night of Champions, Tetrick has committed to driving Cheyenne Hollywood for trainer Scot Di Domenico, in the Robert F. Carey Jr. Memorial, and it’s a commitment Tetrick is happy to honor.
“Anything I can do to help out this great game I’m all for. Chicago’s a great circuit and the Carey’s have always been good to me,” said Tetrick.
The 25-year-old budding superstar will drive the exciting filly Pampered Princess in the $1.5 million Hambletonian a few hours earlier, but the likeable Tetrick, who’s already won two million-dollar races this summer, will board a jet shortly following The Meadowlands’ final race and make it to Hawthorne in time for most of Hawthorne’s big evening.
“Just spending a few hours with my friends and family will make it worthwhile. Even if I win (The Hambletonian) I’ll be there. I love Ryan Anderson and I grew up with Dave Magee as my idol so I’ll make it happen,” added Tetrick.
Seeing the familiar green and yellow in the sulky may be a brief encounter, but also a special one. Tetrick is scheduled to drive in seven of the 14 races. First post is 6:30 pm central time.
Hawthorne Race Course presents live harness beginning on June 22 and concluding on August 5. 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.
