Oklahoma Horseracing

Edward J. DeBartolo is considered by many as the man who brought horseracing tracks to Oklahoma. DeBartolo, then the owner of Balmoral, Thistledown and Louisiana Downs, built the state’s first horseracing track - Remington Park - in Oklahoma City. The $100 million held its inaugural race meet during the fall of 1988.

To this day, Remington Park remains as the center of Oklahoma horseracing. It hosts both quarter horse and thoroughbred racing, with a full calendar of events each season. It also features simulcast wagering and a vibrant casino.

The State of Oklahoma is also home to two other horseracing facilities - Fair Meadows at Tulsa and Will Rogers Downs at Claremore.

Fair Meadows hosts race meets during both the Tulsa County Fair and Tulsa State Fair. Meanwhile, Will Rogers Downs offers 42 days of thoroughbred, appaloosa, quarter and paint horse racing each year.

A number of off-track betting facilities also offer simulcast wagering throughout the state.

The Oklahoma Racing Commission overseas horseracing in Oklahoma.
