In Short:

Remington Park is Oklahoma City's horse racing track, the first legalized gambling venue in the state when it opened in 1988. Ranked as one of the best racetracks in the country, Remington Park features Quarter Horse races from March through June, a Paint and Appaloosa season, and Thoroughbred races from August through December. In addition, Remington Park now has a casino, referred to as a "racino," with over 750 games, as well as a restaurants, cafe, arcade, park area and more.

Location:

Remington Park is located just off Martin Luther King Avenue, south of I-44 and west if I-35, in an area known as Oklahoma City's Adventure District.

The Oklahoma City Zoo is just to the south of Remington Park, so this detailed map will give you an idea of the area.

Horse Races:

Remington Park is open 365 days a year for casino gaming and simulcast horse racing from around the world, but Remington's own horse racing season begins in March with Quarter Horse races through the end of May and often into early June. The Thoroughbred season begins in August and runs through mid-December. See the current Racing Calendar online.
