The richest race date of the 2021 Remington Park Thoroughbred Season, and the only Sunday afternoon program on the calendar, takes place with Oklahoma Derby Day! The huge card, full of stakes events worth $1.1 Million, is on Sunday, Sept. 26 with a first race of 3pm-Central.
The Grade 3, $400,000 Oklahoma Derby is the marquee race with the Grade 3, $200,000 Remington Park Oaks tops for the undercard.
Guests will compete in the renewal of the Oklahoma Derby Day Hat & Tie Contest with hundreds of dollars in prizes available on the Clubhouse level. Contestants in the free event will compete on the catwalk from 2-4pm with the fashionable top five Hats receiving awards, with three prizes going in the tie category. All taking part in the contest will receive a commemorative photo.
Also beginning at 2pm is the Derby Day Wine Tasting Festival, located on Track Level-North. Guests, 21 and more, may enjoy tastings from Oklahoma’s finest wineries for just $10, receiving a tasting glass to keep. While tasting, enjoy the sounds of Bread and Butter!
Proceeds from the wine tasting will benefit Remington Park Charities. The wine tasting takes place until 5pm.
Guests on Oklahoma Derby Day will be greeted by live music as they arrive in the Racing entrance with Brian Lynn Jones Duor in concert from 2-6pm.
The Oklahoma Derby is a top Breeders’ Cup prep race for many of the nation’s 3-year-olds. The day also offers many divisional stakes-racing categories and even more Breeders’ Cup prep opportunities for top horses heading to Del Mar in southern California in early November.
