|SPORTSMAN'S PARK RACECOURSE|
|Sportsman's Park was situated in Chicago and its inaugural meeting took place in 1932 and proved popular, although it had lost some of its gloss by 1950.|
|The National Jockey Club made the racecourse its 'home
track' in the early 1950's and this relationship was maintained until 2002 when it moved
to the nearby Hawthorne Racecourse.
|In 1978 a fire destroyed the Hawthorne Racecourse grandstand and meetings were transferred to Sportsman's Park until 1980.|
|The shutters came down on the track for the last time on
4th May 2002 when Pagliacci, a British bred racechorse, won the final race when ridden by
Z. Cadman and trained by Danny Miller.
