This fall, Hawthorne Race Course puts their own spin on the German celebration of beer. At the track’s Rocktoberfest, samples of craft brews flow from kegs, wetting palates for cuts of tender barbecue while live music wafts through the crisp autumn air. There will be acoustic bands on Friday and Sunday, while Saturday will feature a classic rock cover band. But just because there’s a party doesn’t mean the horse racing stops. In fact, the weekend marks the kickoff of the course’s Fall Thoroughbred Meet, a three-month season of intense races, photo finishes, and single horses hoping to find love.

Hawthorne Race Course

On May 20, 1891, an estimated 6,000 people attended the first-ever Opening Day at Hawthorne Race Course. The event featured the Chicago Derby—a quarter-mile race won by a horse named Brookwood. Since that day, the facility has thrilled Chicago-area racing fans season after season with live competition and full-card simulcasting. But it hasn't always been easy. In 1905, for instance, racing was banned in Chicago for more than 15 years after several of the facility's horses became mired in a political scandal. And Hawthorne Race Course itself has had to overcome its fair share of adversity, including two fires, the most recent of which destroyed the grandstand in 1978.
