Fair Meadows Kicks Off 34-Day Meet

Although the long-term future of live racing at Fair Meadows is still unclear, the Tulsa track kicked off its 34-day mixed meet on Saturday night with a 12-race card that included five Thoroughbred events. The track is scheduled to run through August 2 with racing primarily offered on a Thursday through Sunday schedule.

The majority of races on the Fair Meadows stakes schedule are for Quarter Horses, but the track does have two Thoroughbred stakes. The six-furlong, $45,000-added Muscogee Creek Nation Stakes for Oklahoma-bred fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up, is set for August 2, closing day. The $45,000 Route 66 Stakes for Oklahoma-bred 3-year-olds at up at 6 ½ furlongs is also set for August 2.
