The below is an incomplete list of various match races (intentional and unintentional) to occur at Hawthorne throughout the years.

09/17/1904: Bearcatcher [aka Bear Catcher] vs. Prince Silverwings (September Stakes)

“The September stake was the feature of the day at Hawthorne, but only two horses started. Bear Catcher [sic] won easily in the fast time of 1:39 1-5. He could have done better as he was pulled almost to a walk at the wire.” (The Atlanta Constitution, 09/18/1904)
