Remington Park is race track and casino located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Built in 1988, it was the first world-class pari-mutuel track in Oklahoma. Remington Park was built by the late Edward J. DeBartolo Sr., the shopping mall developer who also owned Thistledown in Cleveland, Ohio and Louisiana Downs in Bossier City, La. at the time. Remington Park is now owned by Global Gaming RP who purchased the facility via auction in 2009 from Magna Entertainment Corporation. Global Gaming began operations at Remington Park on January 1, 2010.
The track features both a Thoroughbred and a Quarter Horse meet. The main dirt track is one mile in circumference with the inner turf course measuring seven furlongs.
Remington Park made headlines upon opening on September 1, 1988 for its use of a synthetic surface for its main track called Equitrack, which utilized grains of sand coated with a wax polymer. The intent was to provide a safe all-weather racing surface that would provide a fast condition for all races. Alas, the Equitrack experiment failed as the surface did not hold up during the very warm Oklahoma summers. Remington Park replaced Equitrack with a more traditional natural ingredient racing surface. No other American track used a synthetic surface until 2005, when Turfway Park installed an improved product called Polytrack.
Remington Park now includes a casino with 750 slot machines.
