1492. . . .Columbus Day Treat for Hunch Players

Stickney, IL - It wasn’t the Nina, Pinta or Santa Maria that sailed to the finish line in the Columbus Day finale at Hawthorne Race Course, but it was a Harbor Craft. And when Harbor Craft, the number 4 horse in the program nosed out the 9 horse Jazzy Gallop for the win, only hunch players with a gifted imagination had the “boating” relationship nailed.

Harbor Craft paid $31.20 to win.

For those who remembered the year of Columbus’s voyage, your love of horses combined with your elementary education resulted in a much greater treat.

In a photo finish for the 3rd and 4th positions, the number one horse, Slewey Armstrong edged out the number 2 horse Ope to complete an order of finish of 4-9-1-2.

If you superfecta boxed the year Columbus sailed the “ocean blue,” which of course was 1492, you had a memorable holiday, as you walked away with $5,636.00.

As I like to say folks, you can’t make this stuff up!

Hawthorne Race Course’s Thoroughbred meet begins on Friday, September 21 and will continue through the end of the year. Live racing will be conducted Wednesday through Sunday, regular first post 1:35 pm central time. Hawthorne Race Course is located at 3501 Laramie Avenue, Cicero, IL 60804, gates open daily at 7 am.
