What were the race conditions for the first race at Hawthorne today (10/10/2009)? On the Brisnet charts it states "Horse that have never won a race on a synthetic surface." I checked the Condition Book at Hawthorne's Website and it doesn't say it. Equibase Charts just say $4K Claimer (Conditioned), but no elaboration on the specific conditions of the race. I just need help in clarifying the exact conditions.
Now, unless Hawthorne managed to go to a synthetic surface overnight (I was at Hawthorne last night to verify they had Dirt), why card a race with those conditions, assuming the Brisnet Chart conditions are right?
Thanks in advance.
