This is great news not only for the Chickasaw Nation, which owns Remington Park through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Global Gaming Solutions, but also for the Oklahoma horse industry, which provides a more than $3 billion annual boost to the state’s economy.
OKLAHOMA CITY — Officials from a subsidiary of the Chickasaw Nation said Thursday they agreed have to buy Remington Park, Oklahoma’s largest horse racing track.
Chickasaw Nation subsidiary will be the new owner of Oklahoma City’s Remington Park. A Chickasaw Nation subsidiary will be the new owner of Oklahoma City’s Remington Park racetrack and casino.
But today Remington Park is owned by the Chickasaw Nation, while Will Rogers Downs is owned by the Cherokee Nation. Even so, both facilities are still considered commercial operations, and not tribal casinos, under existing law and state-tribal compacts.
Built in 1988, it was the first world-class pari-mutuel track in Oklahoma. Remington Park was built by the late Edward J. 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.
Remington Park Casino includes 650 gaming machines; a valet entrance; Wild Rush Bar with overhead sound stage; Remy’s restaurant; 360-degree LCD monitors, or Dynascans; and The Lookout, a race book overlooking the finish line.
Oklahoma City, the state capital, has five tribal casinos and dozens more Oklahoma casinos within driving distance.
Dale Day, who has been the race announcer at Remington Park since 1993, said one of the most noticeable differences is in the winner’s circle after a big money race, such as the Remington Park Futurity in April.
