Backstretch Open, Training Begins Monday
Horses for the fall Thoroughbred meet began arriving at Hawthorne on Thursday in preparation for the opening of the track for training on Monday.
A full backstretch is expected once again as more than 2,300 stalls were applied for and the 1,950 available will be filled to capacity.
Training begins on Monday from 6:00 am 10:15 am daily with a break at 8:00 am daily.
Im extremely encouraged by the amount of stalls that have been applied for this fall at Hawthorne, stated Assistant General Manager Jim Miller. We are expecting a very successful meet as we kick off with a bang with three stakes on opening weekend. With a full backstretch, fields should be very strong once again as we expect to produce a fine racing product daily.
The fall Thoroughbred meet begins on Thursday, October 1 with a 1:20 pm post. Racing will be conducted Wednesday through Sunday with first post of 1:20 pm. On Friday, post time will be 2:30 pm with two special twilight cards on the evenings of October 9 and 16 with a first post of 5:30 pm.
