The history of horse racing in Oklahoma extends decades prior to the modern era of pari-mutuel activity that began in the early 1980s, and well before the opening of Remington Park in 1988.

The Oklahoma Horse Racing Hall of Fame at Remington Park began in 2010, to honor the horses, owners and breeders, trainers, jockeys and industry representatives with a connection to the state who have made a lasting impression on the sport, both in Oklahoma and nationally.

Visiting guests at Remington Park will discover panels, trophy cases, statues and more throughout the facility of those deserving of inclusion into the Oklahoma Horse Racing Hall of Fame.


Prior to the 1980s, top jockeys from Oklahoma had to compete for big-money horse racing victories outside the state. Many of the best jockeys in the sport called Oklahoma home before going on to win the richest races in America. Since the start of pari-mutuel racing in Oklahoma, many jockeys have become local legends with long and prominent careers. The Oklahoma Horse Racing Hall of Fame at Remington Park honors the best jockeys who became stars, both nationally and locally.

Owning a team sports franchise requires extreme amounts of money to buy in when the opportunities arise, and then to continually fund the team operation. Ownership of a racehorse can be much more affordable but still requires the constant support for each franchise, or horse, to be maintained for racing. Owners provide the financial backing for the horses, and receive the bulk of the purses their athletes earn. Breeders make each racehorse possible, matching the proper stallions and mares to create future racing stars. The Oklahoma Horse Racing Hall of Fame salutes the most successful Owners and Breeders connected to the state.

The Oklahoma Horse Racing Hall of Fame at Remington Park recognizes many great horses with ties to the state, from long ago and from a more modern era, who have succeeded at the highest levels, locally and nationally.
