In celebration of National Dog Day 2018, Remington Park once again transforms to ‘Remington Bark’ on Saturday, Aug. 25. This very special event combines Thoroughbred horse racing, with dog festivities and racing exhibitions for some speedy canines.
Remington Bark honors “Man’s Best Friend” and helps raise awareness and funds for many dog-related charities and dog rescue operations in central Oklahoma.
Remington Bark begins at 6pm with all guests wanting to bring their dogs to the event, allowed access to the Plaza where the activities are staged. All dogs must be on a leash and on their best behavior. Thoroughbred horse racing will begin at 7pm.
Dog rescue charities will be in attendance with information on their programs and adoption opportunities. Various vendors and groomers will also be on-hand for ‘Remington Bark’ with dog friendly goods available for purchase and plenty of helpful information.
Wag Bag Giveaway
Open to all dogs, the first 100 dogs to arrive, starting at 6pm, will receive a special “Wag Bags” filled with goodies. There will be only one (1) ‘‘Wag Bag” per family, while supplies last and the dog must be present in order to receive the “Wag Bag.”
Remington Bark Activities
Among the Remington Bark activities will be Costume Contests and exhibition Dog Races. The dog races will feature three size classes in order to make things as competitive and fair as possible: Small, Medium and Large.
A special raffle will also take place, again with the proceeds going to the Remington Bark Charitable partners.
Other Dog amenities include: Agility Course for dogs to run for free; Cooling Stations; Drink Stations; Picture Stations and Designated Dog Potty Areas.
Charity Dog Races
The exhibition dog races will begin at 6:15 with the first two dog races taking place. There will be two more dog races after the running of horse race 2. The last set of dog races will be after the running of horse race 5
