Remington Bark 2017
In celebration of National Dog Day 2017, Remington Park once again transforms to ‘Remington Bark’ on Saturday, Aug. 26. The night will combine 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.
Open to all dogs, the first 100 dogs to arrive, starting at 6pm, will receive special ‘Wag Bags’ filled with dog goodies. There will be only one (1) ‘Wag Bag’ per dog, while supplies last.
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.
Those wishing to allow their dogs to compete must register in advance and will be asked to donate $25 to the Remington Bark Charity Fund. To register for the races, begin with the link below and note the complete set of rules and deadlines to be eligible to compete in the dog racing exhibitions.
Other Dog amenities include: Cooling Stations, Drink Stations, Picture Stations and Designated Dog Potty Areas.
There will be many local dog rescue charities 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.
Remington Park offers free admission, parking and valet parking. See Club Remington for details on all promotions.
