Hawthorne's fall Thoroughbred meet opened on October 5. Picks and Ponderings was there both Friday and Saturday of opening weekend. In this photo gallery, come see some of the horses who made it so much fun!
You have three more months to get up close to the horse racing action yourself. The Hawthorne fall meet runs through January 12, and the track is at 3501 South Laramie -- easy to get to via car, or via bus (54B South Cicero or 316 Laramie). The race days for the rest of 2018 are published on the Hawthorne 2018 calendar; the meet continues on January 4 and 5, and January 11 and 12. First post is at 3:10pm for the first two months of the meet; starting December 6, the first race goes off at 12:55pm instead.
Enjoy the photos, and see you at the track!
