About Hawthorne Race Course
Watching the horses erupt out of the gate and blaze down the stretch, your group will experience racing at its finest. Some will come for the sheer fun of it all. Others will want to put some money on the action. Whether you prefer your event full of live racing and sunshine or in the evening with a serene race course as a backdrop, Hawthorne is the perfect choice anytime. What’s more, entertaining at Hawthorne couldn’t be easier. You’ll have your very own personal event planner to help you organize the smallest of details. And you’ll have a wide variety of newly remodeled flexible space options for groups ranging from 20-2000.
