After-Thanksgiving Friday – Part 1
Plan Now for After-Thanksgiving Friday – Part 1
By M. Scott McMannis
There are important schedule changes this week, and with them, an array of special promotions designed to enhance your experience here at Hawthorne. Make your plans now.
NO LIVE RACING NEXT THURSDAY
Next Thursday is Thanksgiving Day. There will be no live racing at Hawthorne, however, we will be open for simulcasting on our regular schedule.
FRIDAY POST TIME REVERTS TO 1:10 PM
Beginning next Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, first post will no longer be at 3:00 PM but will revert to the same 1:10 PM as all other regular race days. We are doing our holiday celebrating next Friday with the promotion-packed Day After Thanksgiving Event.
FREE BUDWEISER CAP
Here’s one reason you will not want to be late next Friday: in cooperation with Budweiser, we are giving away free Budweiser caps with each paid admission. Remember, however, the caps are available only while supplies last, so don’t delay.
WIN A TRIP TO JAMAICA
Here’s another reason to arrive early next Friday: you will have some paperwork to do. Attached to each official Hawthorne track program will be a Day After Thanksgiving Sweepstakes entry form for several prizes. One will be a free trip for two to Jamaica. We have been giving away four-day and three-night trips to that popular Caribbean destination, courtesy of our partners Air Jamaica and Super Clubs (“The World’s Favorite Super-Inclusive Resorts”), and here’s another chance for you to be on your way to a welcome winter break in Jamaica.
WIN A CHRYSLER PT CRUISER LEASE
A second Sweepstakes prize will be a free two-year lease of a Chrysler PT Cruiser. The PT Cruiser lease is made available by our long-time partner (and horse owner), Frank Mancari, of Mancari’s Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep. Imagine yourself in a sporty PT Cruiser, for free.
WIN A VIP SUITE PACKAGE
A third Sweepstakes prize will be a VIP Suite package. The VIP Suite is located on the top floor of the building, above the Turf Club, and overlooking the finish line. Therefore, it has one of the best views available of the live racing action. You and your group will enjoy refreshments and a day of racing in style in your own private suite.
WIN BETTING VOUCHERS
You wouldn’t turn down free money, would you? Your Sweepstakes entry also puts you in the running to win one of numerous betting vouchers to be given away only at Hawthorne.
