The 2019 Remington Park Thoroughbred Season will begin August 23 and continue through December 15, with the 67-date meeting including a stakes schedule of 32 races boasting purses of more than $3.7 million. 

 

The marquee races for the 2019 season include the Grade 3, $400,000 Oklahoma Derby and the Grade 3, $200,000 Remington Park Oaks, both to be contested on Sunday, Sept. 27. The $400,000 Springboard Mile -- a stop on the Kentucky Derby trail -- will headline the final race date of the season on Sunday, Dec. 15.

 

Lone Sailor captured his first derby win in the 2018 Oklahoma Derby and went on to the Breeders' Cup Classic. She’s A Julie, winner of the 2018 Remington Park Oaks has been spectacular in her races this spring, winning Churchill Downs' La Troienne Stakes (G1) in her most-recent start.

 

Long Range Toddy, winner of the 2018 Springboard Mile, elevated his game after winning Remington Park’s top event for 2-year-olds. He spent his 3-year-old spring at Oaklawn Park where he won a division of the Rebel Stakes (G2) in March. Advancing to the Kentucky Derby earlier this month, Long Range Toddy was forwardly placed as the field turned for home before encountering contact in the historic traffic incident that led to the disqualification of Maximum Security. 

 

The 2019 Remington Park stakes schedule begins on opening night with the $175,000 Governor’s Cup leading that program. Moved back to the opening weekend after serving on the Oklahoma Derby undercard in recent years, the Governor’s Cup is for 3-year-olds and older, at 1 1/8 miles.

 

The Oklahoma Derby and Remington Park Oaks lead the derby day program on Sunday afternoon, Sept. 29. That afternoon boasts eight stakes races with purses worth $1.1 million.

 

The Springboard Mile, the top 2-year-old stakes of the meeting, is preceded by the $100,000 Clever Trevor Stakes (also won by Long Range Toddy in 2018), at seven furlongs on Friday, Nov. 1. The $75,000 Kip Deville begins the open-company stakes races for 2-year-olds on Sept. 29.

 

A total of 16 stakes races are slated for eligible Oklahoma-breds, led by the annual Oklahoma Classics program on Friday, Oct. 18, featuring eight divisional stakes races worth more than $1 million.

The Jeffrey Hawk Memorial Stakes, for 3-year-olds and older going 1 mile and 70 yards on Dec. 15 has been increased to $100,000 for 2019. It was contested for $75,000 in 2018.

 

Remington Park will feature seven stakes races over the turf in 2019 with the $100,000 Remington Green on Sunday, Sept. 29, serving as the richest open-company event over the lawn. The turf stakes schedule will begin on Opening Night, Aug. 23 with the Remington Park turf sprint for Oklahoma-breds, at five furlongs.
