Hawthorne: Afford finds an easier spot in Wednesday feature


STICKNEY, Ill. – It’s one thing having a stable stocked primarily with allowance and stakes horses, as is the case with trainer Greg Geier’s small string. It’s another actually finding races for those horses. But just a week after Geier and his stock – mainly Jim Tafel homebreds – came north from New Orleans, Afford has a spot to run. He’s one of seven entrants, and the most likely winner, in the featured eighth race Wednesday at Hawthorne.
