Hawthorne enters deal with TVG


STICKNEY, Ill. - Hawthorne Race Course has entered into a multiyear agreement with Television Games Network that will make Hawthorne one of the network's featured tracks on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Hawthorne races also will be shown intermittently on its other live days, Friday through Sunday, although other racetracks will still have preference on those days.

Since The Racing Network went out of business in 2001, Hawthorne had not been carried on either TVG nor the new racing channel, Horse Racing Television.
