For Episode 167 of Chicago Race of the Day, it’s all treats and no tricks: Saturday’s 8th at Hawthorne is a challenging Illinois-bred allowance for fillies and mares, going six and a half furlongs on the dirt. It’s a specialist distance, and it’s a field where there isn’t really anyone who has stepped up yet to prove that this is their specialty. So, between pace and pedigree, we try to figure out who can get the trip and who has the stamina to get that last half-furlong…including one horse who can do it at a price.
