OKLAHOMA CITY – The first horses began arriving in the Remington Park Stable Area this morning at 5:30am. Trainers will continue to bring horses in throughout the rest of day.
The Remington Park racing surface was originally scheduled to open tomorrow, Wed., Feb. 5, but winter weather has delayed that event until Sunday, Feb. 9.
Trainer Tana Caldwell of Jones, Okla. was the first to pass through the Remington Park stable gate, bringing five horses on the grounds. The next trainer through the gate was Bonifacio Almanza, also of Jones. He brought 16 athletes with him.
