Trainer Reavis sets Hawthorne Record
STICKNEY, IL -- Longtime Chicago trainer Mike Reavis had a banner day at Hawthorne on Saturday day as he set a Hawthorne record saddling five winners on the card.
The record of four on a card was last set by Jere Smith, Sr. on December 2, 1992, and the only other known five-bagger on a single card in Chicago is held by Tom Tomillo at Sportsman's Park in 1996.
Reavis opened his day with a win in the 2nd race with Gamer ($9.00). He followed that up with an entry that missed the board in the 3rd and then grabbed consecutive victories in the 4th and 5th with Lindholm ($10.00) and Drummer Ken ($9.20) respectively.
Reavis then went on to grab the final two races of the day as Not Happening ($9.00) won the 9th and Game Bird ($24.20) won the finale.
