REMINGTON PARK ALTERS DATE FOR SPRINGBOARD MILE, ANNOUNCES NEW POST TIMES FOR SOME DATES IN FINAL TWO MONTHS OF SEASON
Remington Park has set post times for upcoming Monday and Tuesday programs over the final two months of the season, in addition to moving the $200,000 Springboard Mile to a new date.
The Springboard Mile, the top 2-year-old stakes event of the Remington Park season, has been moved to Friday night, Dec. 18, along with five other stakes races originally scheduled for Dec. 20. The extended program on Friday, Dec. 18 will begin at 5pm.
The Springboard Mile has been a key final 2-year-old race on the calendar for many in recent years who have navigated the road and made a start in the Kentucky Derby the following spring. Alumni, with year and finish position, who have competed in the Springboard Mile and then later in the Kentucky Derby include Will Take Charge (2012, second), Suddenbreakingnews (2015, second), Combatant (2017, second) and Long Range Toddy (2019 winner).
Remington Park will race on Mondays and Tuesdays at the end of November and in the final two weeks of the season in December. The first race on those dates will take place at Noon.
