Thornton Fires Back, Regains Jockey Lead
Stickney, IL – Entering Friday's ten-race card at Hawthorne, 21-year-old jockey Tim Thornton trailed Chris Emigh by three races with just three racing days left in the meet.
When the day ended Thornton had surged ahead.
By virtue of winning four races, while Emigh was shutout, Thornton regained the lead in the jockey race, and heads into the final weekend with a one-win advantage.
Thornton guided favorites Memories of Nellie ($4.80), Very Capo ($3.80), Salty Celebration ($6.00), and Leaping Lily ($4.40) to popular victories and moved the Louisiana native a step closer to a possible first jockey title.

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.
