Congratulations are in order for jockey Inez Karlsson. Not only is she in the running for the leading rider for Hawthorne’s Fall/Winter race meet (at the end of Thursday’s card, Inez carried a six-win advantage over fellow reinsman Chris Emigh. With Saturday being Emigh’s last scheduled day to ride before he heads to Oaklawn, Karlsson could be in the driver’s seat), but she’s one of the three finalists for the prestigious Eclipse Award for the leading apprentice riders in the nation.
This Eclipse Award, as well as most of them, will be awarded on January 26th. The ceremonies will be held at the Fountainbleau Miami Beach. Here’s wishing Inez the best of luck and continued success as a journeyman rider (Wednesday was the last day that Inez had the “bug”.

Down to the Wire

The trainer’s race (when this was written) was too close to call. At the end of races Thursday, Frank Kirby, Brian Williamson, and Roger Bruggemann were tied with 26 wins apiece. Moises Yanez was in fourth with 21 victories to his credit.
Going into Friday’s races, Kirby had the most bullets left to fire with 14 runners entered for the final weekend. Roger Brueggemann had eight, while both Brian Williamson and Moises Yanez would have to make do with only five runners each.

While we might not feature live racing for a couple of months, Hawthorne should still be considered to be your premier simulcast location. We’ll be featuring racing from all over the fact from all over the world.  We feature world-class cuisine, spacious accommodations, and a plethora, over 100, of high-definition flat-panel televisions for your viewing pleasure.
As you know, Swedish harness racing has crossed the pond and the lakes, and will be a major part of our winter recess. The V64 on Wednesdays and the V75 on Saturdays are sure to attract a few bucks, as the possibility of winning millions, for a 10-cent wager, is a pretty nifty incentive to play. Watch and wager on all the Swedish trotting races right here at Hawthorne.
The Kentucky Derby preps will soon be coming hot and heavy. The Grade 3 San Rafael at Santa Anita and the California Derby at Golden Gate are coming up quickly; next Saturday, in fact. Two weeks later, the Grade 2 Hutchinson and the Grade 3 Holy Bull will be contested at=2 0Gulfstream. And that’s only in the month of January. Things get really busy after that.
Plus, with Club Hawthorne, the best rewards program in the country, you earn a point for every dollar wagered before 6:30 pm and a half-point for every dollar wagered after 6:30. Who can match that?
We’ll be back live on March 6th but don’t wait until then to stop in and say hi. Put the snow shovel, the ice skates, and the sled away. Stop watching bad reruns on TV. Come out and play. You know you want to.
