Live Racing Cancelled Friday at Hawthorne


STICKNEY, IL – The live racing card for Friday at Hawthorne Race Course has been cancelled.  With heavy rains expected to begin on Thursday evening, carrying through the entire day on Friday, nearly 1.5 inches of rainfall are expected in that period in the Chicagoland area.

                Live racing is expected to resume on Saturday, with a first post of 3:10 PM.   Those races that had the most entries for Friday will be carried over to the Saturday card as extras, which will be drawn on Wednesday morning.

                Additionally, the track will be closed for training on Friday, allowing for the track crew to seal the track, keeping as much water as possible on the top of the racing surface. 

Hawthorne Race Course, Chicago’s Hometown Track, returned for spring thoroughbred racing on Friday, March 15. The summer harness meet opens on Friday, May 5 and races through September 24.  Fall thoroughbreds close out the year, running from October 10 through December 28.  For more information, visit or contact Hawthorne at 708-780-3700.
