The Hawthorne meet wound down on Saturday, January 4. In Episode 108 of Chicago Race of the Day, I look back on the final race of the meet, which we delved into in the last episode. In addition, I discuss some of the equine and human leaders of the meet, as well as talk a bit about what you can expect from the podcast during Illinois racing’s winter break.
I mention near the end of the podcast that I was recently a guest on In the Gate, talking about the racing situation in Illinois. If you’re interested in hearing a little more about that — the gaming bill, Arlington’s decision not to proceed with a racino, and my thoughts about it — make sure to listen to the latest episode of In the Gate.
