George Harrison, "the quiet Beatle" who died Thursday as a result of cancer at age 58, will be remembered Sunday at Hawthorne Racecourse. With the exception of the day's Colonel Power Stakes (7th race), every race on the card at the Chicago-area track will be named for a Harrison song. Harrison died at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at a friend's Los Angeles home.
The races and their respective Harrison-song inspired names are:
1st--"My Sweet Lord"
2nd--"Isn't It a Pity"
3rd--"All Those Years Ago"
5th--"While My Guitar Gently Weeps"
