Winter Weather Cancels Hawthorne Dec. 9-10

Storm advisory the culprit for the cancellation.

In response to a severe winter storm advisory for Dec. 9-10, there will be no live racing or training on either day at Hawthorne Race Course in Stickney, Ill. Snowfall is forecast between two and four inches Dec. 9, but heavy winds that may gust to over 50 mph could create dangerous racing conditions. The forecast high for Dec. 10 is only in the teens with wind chills not expected to surpass zero.

Hawthorne will remain open for simulcasting on both days and racing and training is expected to return Dec. 11 with a 1:20 p.m. CST first post.
