Hawthorne Race Course canceled the last seven races on Friday due to unsafe track conditions. In addition, races have already been cancelled for Saturday.
Rising temperatures started melting the underlying ice on the racetrack, causing uneven footing for the horses. After consultation between track officials and the jockeys, it was decided that, for safety sake, to cancel until next Thursday.
All carryover pools will carry over until next Thursday, December 6th. In addition, that will be the first day of the new winter post time. The new 1st post time will be 12:55pm.
