Remington Park, Oklahoma City
Remington Park is among the latest of the world-class horse-racing venues brought by the DeBartolo family. Betting is allowed (this was a huge political issue at the time, but has since won over the populace), and simulcasts at other venues are provided. Quarter horse and thoroughbred racing at its finest are both seasonally available at this immaculate and ultramodern facility. Fans can watch through binoculars from the shaded seats or hear the turf-pounding at trackside.
Equipment: A pair of binoculars, a mini-fan or parasol might come in handy during our warmer months.
