STICKNEY, IL - Dandy Farms Inc & Mark Winship's OK Heavenly set the new track record for a harness racing four-year-old pacing mare on Friday evening at Hawthorne. Trained by Angie Coleman and driven by the meet's leading driver Casey Leonard, OK Heavenly assumed command early and never looked back in Friday's seventh race. She covered the opening quarter in :28 and the half in :55.2. She extended her lead into the lane through three quarters in 1:23.1 and crossed the wire a 6¾ length victor in 1:50.4. OK Heavenly eclipsed the previous track record of 1:51.1, set by Ready to Rumba on July 6, 2008. The win was the seventh on the year for OK Heavenly.

Early Pick 5 Carryover and Late Pick 4 Guarantee for Night of Champions

On Friday evening at Hawthorne, there were no winners in the Early Pick 5, leading to a carryover pool of $2,259 to start the Night of Champions card with the 7:00 PM first post. Later in the evening, races 9-12 will compile the late pick 4 as Hawthorne and the USTA Strategic Wagering Program will team up for a $25,000 guaranteed pool on the wager. The guaranteed pool will be comprised of four stakes races as free past performances can be found on the USTA website.
