Remington Park in Oklahoma City will open its 50-date spring racing season on Friday.

Remington Park will open its 50-date spring season with an 11-race program on Friday. Post time for the first race is set for 6 p.m. (CST).

Five of Remington Park's opening-night races are for Quarter Horses, including the 11th and featured race, a 300-yard, $25,000 open-condition allowance sprint for fillies and mares. Named the "Decketta Prep," the race has drawn a full field of 10 distaffers, topped by PV Quarter Horse Farms' Send Me Good Candy, a homebred 4-year-old daughter of Good Reason Sa trained by Clint Crawford. Send Me Good Candy ended her sophomore campaign with two wins, including the 350-yard, $18,000 Miss Ellen Stakes for fillies and mares at Will Rogers Downs.

Remington Park's rich stakes schedule will once again be topped by Oklahoma's richest race for any breed, the 350-yard, $1-million Heritage Place Futurity (G1) on closing night, June 3. Other prominent stakes include the 440-yard, $250,000 Remington Park Invitational Championship (G1) for older runners, also to be contested on closing night.

Remington Park will offer live racing on a Thursday-through-Sunday schedule. First post time will be 6 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and 1:30 p.m. on Sundays. The track will also present a special Memorial Day Monday program on May 29, with first post set for 3 p.m.
