On another cold and snowy evening (Sunday, January 14) at Hawthorne Race Course, the second week of the winter meet concluded with a fine performance on the track from driver Kyle Wilfong. The 26-year-old guided home five winners from his eight drives on the Sunday card.

After a fourth-place finish in the night’s opener with Lilac Laurey, Wilfong won the second race on the card with Skyway Fireball ($11.40). He came right back in the third, driving Her Royal Hottness ($15.00) to the win, getting up in the shadow of the wire. After finishing second with Fox Valley Hoss in Race 4 and third behind Lotta Richess in Race 5, Wilfong was back in the winner’s circle in the sixth with Cuinthepurplerain ($3.80). In Race 7, Wilfong guided Banker Volo ($9.80) from the back of the pack to win the open trot from the outside. He closed his driving night with a win in Race 8 from Maserati Seelster ($3.60).

The night capped a seven-win week for Wilfong, as he has gotten off to a hot start during the winter meet.

The winter harness meet at Hawthorne continues through February 19. Thoroughbred racing resumes at the end of March and continues through April. Summer harness action takes place May through September. Fall Thoroughbreds close out the year October through December.
