The Remington Park 2019 Thoroughbred season begins Aug. 23. Monday morning, the stable area opened to receive horses for the season with trainer Joe Offolter the first to bring horses on the grounds at 6:18 a.m. CDT.

A member of the Oklahoma Horse Racing Hall of Fame at Remington Park, Offolter sent six horses to their stalls this morning.

Among them were, Erlenmeyer, a five-time winner in his career, and many 2-year-olds who will seek their career debuts at Remington Park.

Among those arriving in Oklahoma City for the first time was Foolish Princess, a 2-year-old filly by Palace Malice, who won the 2013 Belmont Stakes and the 2014 Metropolitan Handicap, both Grade 1 events conducted at Belmont Park.

Offolter is third all-time at Remington Park in wins with 521.

In 2018, the Dibble, Okla. resident had 14 wins, 12 seconds and 12 thirds from 116 starters with total earnings of $269,033.

Offolter has $7,128,394 in career earnings at Remington Park, where he has competed since the track’s first day of racing Sept. 1, 1988.

Remington Park will open the main track for morning training Tuesday with horses permitted on the surface from 6-10 a.m.

A break in the summer heat will greet horses on the first morning of training as temperatures are expected in the low 60s.

The 67-date Remington Park Thoroughbred season runs from Aug. 23-Dec. 15.

The $175,000 Governor’s Cup for 3-year-olds and up going 1 1/8 miles will headline the Opening Night of racing.
