A pair of series finals, along with a consolation final took place on a breezy Wednesday night at Hawthorne Race Course.

Race six on the Wednesday card was the Whizzer R. White Pacing Series consolation final as a field of nine lined up after the scratch of Big Moon Rizing. Early in the consolation final, JDs Brent N Sheree took the lead and led the field into the lane. At the top of the stretch, he lost his action and dropped back. Dale Hiteman and Ocaptain Mycaptain ducked to the inside to avoid traffic and kept their momentum, winning in 1:57 over the track listed as "good." First Frost made a sustained move to finish second, while Mr Mark Patrick was third. Ocaptain Mycaptain is owned by Megan Rogers Racing Stables, Inc. and is trained by Carl Porcelli Jr.

Race seven was the $16,600 Suburban Downs Pacing Series final with a full field of 10. Leaving for the early lead was Tyron My Gigolo and Kyle Husted, but they quickly gave up the lead to Freedomformysoul. Freedomformysoul led the field into the lane as favourite Kolt Power looked for room while second choice Valiente Stride made a three-wide bid. Late in the stretch, Freedomformysoul battled on, but Tyron My Gigolo dove to the inside and rallied for the victory at 26-1. Freedomformysoul finished second, just holding off Valiente Stride. Tyron My Gigolo covered the mile in 1:54.4. Tyron My Gigolo is owned by Quaid Racing LLC and trained by James Ellison.

Race eight was the $22,200 final of the Whizzer R. White Pacing Series as Over Friskie looked for a clean sweep of this series. The field of nine, after the scratch of Mr Pickpocket, saw Trace Tetrick move early to take the lead with 4-5 favourite Over Friskie early as John Jay tracked him the entire way. Into the stretch, Over Friskie opened up, winning by daylight in a lifetime-best 1:53.2. John Jay held second, One To Draw To finished third.
