Hawthorne Race Course

Hawthorne Racecourse (10/8/10)

Friday $2 promotion returns at Hawthorne

$2 Fridays are back today with $2 Admission which includes program, $2 hot dogs and $2 beers.

We have a later post today with a 2:35 pm start but you may want to get out here early as there is great racing across the country. The Keeneland fall meet opens today with fine stakes action and the weather has cleared in New York. Evening racing resumes in California and our card which is stacked full of runners is sandwiched right in between all of the action!

Looking back at the Thursday card, the track played evenly and prices have been coming in all meet long. It’s trying to find the right horse for the course, but it’s all about value and you can find it here. Both Pick 4 races produce great betting options and don’t be surprised if you see a couple $40+ winners on today’s card.

Featured Race of the Day

Race 7 is an $18,0000 claimer on the turf with a full field of 12. There are only a couple of horses who can show some speed, one of those being #2 – Prairie Academy. She comes off a bit of a rest into this spot but takes a significant class drop. She held her own against Optional Claimers on the grass in June and July and if ready, maybe she can wire these today.

Make sure to play our Featured Race of the Day with your Club Hawthorne Card daily as you will qualify for the chance to win our Breeders’ Cup Super Bet. Every time you play our Featured Race with your Club Hawthorne card, you are automatically entered for your chance to win and one fan will win that opportunity to place a $5,000 wager on the Breeder’s Cup Classic. Our Super Bet promotion runs through October 30. For more details, go to our website,
