My favourite racetrack, Hawthorne, resumes racing today. Of course, Chicago Railbird is there. Today’s column provides an introduction to the track down at 35th and Cicero, as well as a preview of three of the races on today’s opening card.
The schedule of racing at Hawthorne this meet is a little different than it was at Arlington, but Chicago Railbird will still be twice a week. The meet opens on a Friday, but starting next week racing runs Wednesday through Saturday. Thus, going forward, the weekday edition of Chicago Railbird will cover Wednesday and Thursday racing and then the weekend edition will cover Friday and Saturday.
The opening races drew with full, fun fields; this meet should be starting out with a bang. Head on over to ShapperDaCapper, read today’s Chicago Railbird, and get ready for opening day at Hawthorne!
