Remington Cancels Wednesday Card; No Power In Stable Area Due To Oklahoma Ice Storm

A rare October ice storm in Oklahoma City has forced Remington Park to cancel Wednesday night’s race card, according to the track’s Twitter account. It is the first time the National Weather Service has ever issued and ice storm warning in Tulsa or Norman during the month of October, according to The Washington Post.

Freezing ran created thick ice on trees and branches around Oklahoma City, knocking out power to hundreds of thousands.

“Due to extensive tree damage causing unsafe travel conditions, uncertain power situations and lack of power in the stable area, the racing card for tonight, Wed., Oct. 28, has been cancelled,” reads the statement on Remington Park’s Twitter account.

“Due to the nature of the weather and conditions on the backstretch and stable area, combined with the spirit of safety to horse and rider, Remington Park is canceling our Wednesday, Oct. 28 card,” reads a statement from Matt Vance, Remington’s Vice President of Operations. “Remington Park will be making this card up in the days to come. An announcement will be made when that determination has been decided.”
