Opening as the first world-class pari-mutuel track in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Remington Park is a horse racing track and casino built in 1988 by Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. Mr. DeBartolo was a shopping mall developer who also owned the Ohio-based Thistledown racetrack and the Louisiana-based Louisiana Downs racetrack.

Remington Park was the only American track to use a synthetic surface on its main track when it opened its gates. The surface material was called Equitrack and used wax polymer-coated sand. It was supposed to provide a safe, all-weather surface, but the Oklahoma summers saw to it to make it fail. The surface material was replaced with a traditional, more natural material. After that, no other racetrack used synthetics until 2005, with the appearance of Polytrack.

Remington Park boasts the main dirt track that is one mile in circumference with an inner turf course that measures 7 furlongs. In 2005, the venue also included a casino with 750 slot machines. The racetrack hosts a season dedicated to American Quarter Horse, Paint and Appaloosa, starting March and ending June. Thoroughbreds run August through December and, additionally, Remington Park annually hosts the richest race in Oklahoma, the $1,000,000 Heritage Place Futurity. Plus, it hosts the $400,000 Oklahoma Derby for the fall Thoroughbred season. Simulcast racing and casino gaming are up for grabs the rest of the year.

The Remington Park Racetrack was rated #3 under the rating system for sixty-five Thoroughbred racetracks, introduced by the Horseplayers Association of North America in 1999.
