Four horses and one horseman will join the Oklahoma Horse Racing Hall of Fame during a ceremony at Remington Park Sept. 23. The first inductees to the hall since 2017 include Danny Caldwell, the all-time leading owner by wins at Remington Park with 421 entering the 2023 season. Among Caldwell's claims who went on to win stakes at Remington are Fifth Date, Dont Tell Nobody, Rated R Superstar and Eurobond.

“In 2001, I was coaching Panama High School in the state softball championships at the USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium, a couple of furlongs from Remington Park,” Caldwell said upon learning of his Hall of Fame inclusion. “I really got going with horse racing right after that. I would have never thought, that just over 20 years later, I would be going into the Hall of Fame at Remington. I am truly honored.”

Equine entrants into the hall are led by Remington Park all-time wins leader Welder (The Visualizer), who won 16  races at the oval and earned over $1.2 million during his racing career  from 2015-2021. Welder also holds the record for most stakes wins at Remington with 11.

Joining him in the hall of fame are: Shotgun Kowboy (Kodiak Kowboy), winner of the 2015 Oklahoma Derby and a record four Oklahoma Classics Cups; Slide Show (Slewacide), winner of 11 consecutive Remington Park races from 1993 to 1995, including seven stakes races; and fan favorite Darrell Darrell (Boca Rio).
