This Friday’s card at Hawthorne has been drawn. All eyes will be on the first five races: no one hit the Pick 5 on either of the first two days of the meet, so there’s a two-day carryover of over $30,000. Over at Picks and Ponderings, I take a look at the sequence.
Hawthorne made it a tough sequence: three maiden races, laden with lightly-raced horses, and a pair of salty and competitive claimers. There are live price horses through the sequence, and anyone who hits should be nicely rewarded.
