Sunday's featured race, a $19,400 trot, going as the tenth race, promises to be an exciting event. Four-year-old sensation Columbus Hanover goes for his ninth win of the year and his fourth in his last five starts. He beat many of his rivals from this race in his last. Plus he drew a better post this time around. They could have a tough time ending his streak.
AJ's Sammy could offer the main threat. He wasn't a match for Columbus Holiday in last but that race stopped a four-race win streak of his own. He visited the winner's circle in six of his 12 starts so far this year. You know he wants to get back.
COULD YOU USE A MILLION BUCKS?
With only 37 days in the meet, Suburban Downs at Hawthorne was forced to pack months worth of promotions into a much shorter period of time. The meet started off with a bang with the Brad Paisley concert last night but there is plenty more to come.
This coming Wednesday, Hawthorne will feature it's first give-away of the season. The first 1500 fans entering the track will pick up a valuable souvenir as a token of our appreciation.
It's the next give-away, however, that will really get the blood flowing.
This coming Friday, June 14, don't forget to pick up a Chicago Sun Times. Each paper will contain a game card. Simply bring the card to Hawthorne, any time between June 14 and July 13, and insert it into one of the readers. You Win!!! It's as easy as that.
Oh! Did I forget to mention the prizes? You're going to love this. You might be the winner of a cool $1,000,000! There will also be prizes of $100,000, $50,000, and a 1950 Chevy Convertible. Even if you don't win one of the big prizes you won't go home empty-handed. Every card is a winner. No purchase is necessary. Gotta love it! Of course, official rules will be posted at Hawthorne and in the Chicago Sun Times.
