Oaklawn Park meet kicks off Friday

With the backstretch nearly bursting at the seams Tuesday and the grandstand undergoing a spit-and-polish job, it is clearly Oaklawn time in Arkansas.

“This is like Christmas for us, what we work all year for,” said Eric Jackson, the track’s general manager. “It’s [three days] away, and we can’t wait.”


Friday will be the first of 56 days of racing at Oaklawn, which will continue its season to April 14. To prepare for the new meet, the grandstand will be closed for simulcasting through Thursday so crews can attend to waxing the floors, cleaning windows, and putting the tote board through its paces in advance of an anticipated crowd of more than 20,000 on Friday.
