SOUTHERN ROCKETOP CRUSHES TRACK RECORD
Driver Brian Carpenter sent this ICF Gelding right to the lead and from that moment on, it wasn’t as much a question of if, but more like ‘how many.’
“We made some equipment changes and it made all the difference in the world,” explained his most ecstatic trainer, Monique Bernardi.
Southern Rocketop can be seen defending his newly-established record on Saturday, Aug 1, during Hawthorne’s Night of Champions.
Hawthorne Race Course’s Summer harness meet paces from Tuesday June 24 and continues through August 7. Live racing will be conducted Tuesday through Sunday, first post 7:20 pm, except Sunday, first post 6:30 pm. Thoroughbreds return on September 26, and race until the end of the year. The track is open year-round for simulcast wagering, day and night. Hawthorne Race Course is located at 3501 Laramie Avenue, Cicero, IL 60804.
