Global Gaming Reinvents Remington Park

A subsidiary of the Chickasaw Nation plans to unveil its multimillion dollar refurbishment of Remington Park in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on March 3, a day before the start of the track’s Quarter Horse meet.

The improvemenets inlcude an infield video board with what track officials describe as the largest at any American racetrack with a casino.

When the company applied for a racing license, it promised the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission it would spend $12 million on refurbishment.
