Thoroughbreds return to Remington Park for new season

Large crowds expected when thoroughbreds return to Remington Park

Remington Park kicks off the 2022 thoroughbred season Friday with a superstar horse rematch in the race's first betting contest, the $175,000 Governor's Cup. Remington Park's opening night celebration lasts for two days, with races on Friday and Saturday nights starting at 7:07 p.m. each night.

"The first two nights we have 18 races, nine a night," said Dale Day, director of marketing and communications at Remington Park. "We have 87 horses both nights, an average field size of 9.6, which is very good. Nationally, having around nine per race is highly respected."

Friday night's grants total $381,925, with the $175,000 Governor's Cup topping the night. The season will begin with a 5-1/2-stadium sprint for the $5,000 Oklahoma-bred contenders 3 years and older.

"We usually get a very good appreciation for our national opening weekend for national horse players," Day said.

"We're pretty crowded in our suites for both nights," Day said. "Reservations for all restaurants are not completely sold out, but we will be pretty close when things go on Friday night and Saturday night."

Customers can watch and bet on races at Bricktown Brewery at the casino; the brewery now admits people of all ages and is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. until the end of the day's race card.


In last year's Governor's Cup, ranked superstar R was the winner, finishing just one race ahead of the man from the plains. Both horses return for a rematch this year, leaving the starting grid side by side on Friday, with Superstar R ranked at Position 1 and Plainsman at Position 2.

This year, 7-year-old Plainsman is the 4-1 favorite against the 9-year-old R-rated superstar. Plainsman is owned by Shortleaf Stable of Hot Springs, Arkansas. The R-ranked superstar is owned by Danny Caldwell of Poteau, Oklahoma. With 372 wins, Caldwell is the most successful Remington Park owner of all time.
