Hawthorne-Race-Track-Featured

TSH: Some Kind of Horse Blog

There are no spring road races in Chicago yet so Tenspeed Heroes visit the Hawthorne Race Track in Cicero, Illinois. Silver Crush, Southern Bling, Spirit of a Nation, French Chick, Saar, Milwaukee Wolf and Fly Dubai run with an asymmetrical gait on a frozen one mile dirt oval. In the sixth race, Everybody Lies and jockey Emmanuel Esquivel surprise the field with victory. It is a bumpy affair with disqualifications and mixed emotions leaving empty pockets for the Heroes.
