PICK 4 OR MORE BETS CANCELLED, OTHER BETS ADDED
Pursuant to the monthly Illinois Racing Board's meeting of November 12, 2002, Hawthorne Race Course cannot accept wagers on any pick-4 or above wagers (pick-4, pick-5, pick-6, etc.). This applies to all out of state simulcast wagering and all Illinois live wagering.
The order was immediate, therefore effective Wednesday, November 13, 2002, regardless of what is in the program, a pick-3 will be the only pick wager type accepted until further notice.
If you have further questions, please call the Illinois Racing Board at 312-814-2600.
The Pick 6 carryover will be held, pending a decision by the Illinois Racing Board on its distribution.
For Friday's races, Hawthorne will be changing the wagering format. Superfecta wagering will be available in every race but the first and two Pick 3s have been added; in the first race and in the fourth.
Wednesday's Hawthorne races produced winner's for many who had been blanked so far for the meet. Things started in the first when Moonlight Spy ($22.00) won. It was the first win of the meet for both trainer Alfonso Razo and jockey Luis Robletto.
Pink Camellia ($6.60) won the second, the first victory for conditioner Steve Asmussen.
Tez Tarak lit up the toteboard in the fourth when he paid $129.80. That was trainer Terrel Gore's first win of the meet.
Ralph Martinez's Let's Make Life ($6.00) won the fifth, giving him his first Hawthorne fall victory this year.
In the sixth, Marian Francis ($6.60) was the first victory of the meet for trainer Donna Dupuy.
Princess Redwood's winning payoff of $181.40 was easily the highest win payoff of the meet. It was also the first win for both jockey Lupe Macias and trainer Jerry Hammond.
On the other hand, top connections Michael Reavis and Larry Sterling teamed up for the late Daily Double with Ft. Mann ($13.80) in the eighth and Sixteen Colony ($6.20) in the ninth. The Double paid $30.40. Sterling also won the fifth with Let's Make Life ($6.00).
EMIGH TAKES TWO
Jockey Chris Emigh won a pair on Wednesday. He took the second with Pink Camellia ($6.60) and the fourth with Tez Tarak ($129.80).
Jockey Duane Salvino took off his mounts on Wednesday due to a sore elbow.
