Hawthorne Will Drop Seven Wednesday Cards

The Illinois Racing Board Nov. 27 approved Hawthorne Race Course's request to drop seven Wednesday cards because of the effects of an outbreak of neurological equine herpes on the backstretch.

The outbreak appears to be contained, said Hawthorne assistant general manager Jim Miller, but restrictions on shipping into and out of Hawthorne have made it challenging to fill races.

 Racing dates scrubbed are Nov. 7, Nov. 14, Nov. 21 and Nov. 28, as well as Dec. 5, Dec. 12 and Dec. 19. The first three dates, which have passed, were eliminated under an emergency request to the IRB staff.
