Remington Park Picks – Saturday, October 10, 2020
One of the few horse racing tracks in the country to permit spectators, Remington Park in Oklahoma City has a nine-race card full of maiden, allowance, and claiming races to kick off the weekend. I found some good underdog wagers in the three races I reviewed, but sadly, no profitable show-wager prospects.
Remember that you can always find today’s complete race card for Remington Park with a quick visit to one of our recommended online racebooks.
In the meantime, let’s get right to my Remington Park picks and betting tips for Saturday, October 10, 2020.
Pick for Remington Park Race 1
This is an allowance optional claiming race for two-year-olds running a distance of 6-1/2 furlongs for a purse of $30,000.
I like the third-favored (7/2) entry here—Lucky Promise, with Lindey Wade in the irons. This colt moneyed both of his career starts, winning one of them.
The longest odds in this six-horse field are 10/1, and I don’t see a money finish here for that entry.
- Win: Lucky Promise 7/2
Pick for Remington Park Race 4
This is a maiden claiming race for Oklahoma-bred two-year-olds running a distance of six furlongs for a purse of $20,400.
I’m going with the second-favored (4/1) entry in this race—Coach Dan, with Roberto Morales aboard. Like many in this field, this colt has no record of starts, but he’s performed well during recent workouts.
I see no long-odds entries in this maiden race worth the risk of a show bet, so save your money.
- Win: Coach Dan 4/1
Pick for Remington Park Race 8
This is an allowance race for fillies and mares three years old and upward running a distance of one mile for a purse of $30,000.
I like the second-favored (4/1) entry here—Texas Rain, ridden by Sophie Doyle. This three-year-old filly moneyed six of her nine career starts, winning three of them.
Not one of the longer-odds entries in this race shows any indication of finishing in the money, so no value bet for this one.
- Win: Texas Rain 4/1

Remington Park had some good underdogs today, but was a bit light on the long-odds moneymakers. I found plenty of those, however, at the other two tracks I reviewed for Saturday:
