HAWTHORNE RACE COURSE OPENS FALL MEET WITH TRACKSIDE OKTOBERFEST AND NIGHT RACING

"Hometown" Track Will Host Chicago's Only Nighttime Thoroughbred Racing Featuring Beer, BBQ and Live Music


The historic fall meet at Hawthorne Race Course begins on October 4 with a "Rocktoberfest" party throughout the weekend featuring $1 craft beer samples, a barbeque, and live music right along the homestretch.

On Saturday, October 5, Hawthorne will host one exciting night of Thoroughbred racing. "There's just something different about major sports at night. At twilight when those big stadium lights come on there's an electric excitement in the air," Hawthorne president Tim Carey stated, "when we turn on the lights and send riders to the gate, you know something special is about to happen." Saturday will also feature the 49th running of the $200,000 Hawthorne Derby (GIII), a 1 1/8 mile test on the turf.
