Strong action at entry box for first two days of fall meet


STICKNEY, Ill. – Fresh off a successful Illinois Racing Board 2016 dates-award meeting Tuesday, Hawthorne Race Course starts its 51-day fall-winter race meet Friday. Hawthorne will host more harness racing than flat racing in 2016 as the only Illinois track allotted harness dates, but until then, the focus is Thoroughbreds, as has long been the case at this time of year in Chicago.
