HAWTHORNE NOTES

Hawthorne Racecourse daily notes (4/25/03)

Contact: Jim Miller
(708) 780-3700

MCCOY OFF THE BUBBLE

Trainer Jim McCoy ended a long dry spell when his Morning Merry won the second race, a one-mile event on the turf. McCoy was 0-for-30 at the meet going into the race.

NO, THAT WASN'T OLD FAITHFUL

Not only was Friday's 10th race rather eventful, resulting in a disqualification of the third-place runner for interference, but soon after the race a water main broke in the barn area, sending a beautiful plume of water high in the air.

TALKNOW CONDITION UNCERTAIN

Talknow, a local fan favorite for the last couple of years after getting claimed for $5,000, was pulled up in Friday's eighth race. This talented gelding, who won both stakes and a Claiming Crown race in Philadelphia last year, had won six of his seven prior Hawthorne starts. At this time, his condition is unknown.

REAVIS/STERLING TEAM UP FOR TWO

Leading trainer Michael Reavis and leading rider Larry Sterling Jr. scored a pair of victories on Friday's card. Gee Don't You Wish ($4.60) took the sixth and King of Chicago ($5.80) won the 10th.

BOURQUE WITH RIDING DOUBLE

Jockey Curt Bourque, who recently scored his 3,000 career victory here, won a pair on Friday. He took the third with Just A Sheila ($3.20) and the fifth with Big Alex ($3.80).
