Winter Weather Forces Postponement of Remington Training Races

The races scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday have been moved to next week.

Edited press release

Remington Park has postponed its scheduled training races for this week.

Sub-freezing temperatures and freezing rain on Tuesday, with more forecast for Wednesday, has forced a postponement of this week’s Remington Park training race activity.

There were eight training races scheduled for both Wednesday, February 21 and Thursday, February 22. Those training race dates will now be moved to Monday and Tuesday, February 26 and 27. Eight races will be run each day, with first post time set for 11 a.m. (CST). 

Remington Park conducts 250-yard training races to allow horsemen to prepare their young charges for their first pari-mutuel start. The horses must demonstrate the ability to handle the racing experience and meet certain timing standards to be approved by Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission stewards for actual racing.

Remngton's spring meet opens March 9.
