Lone Star Park, which kicked off its abbreviated 36-day meet May 22, released its revised stakes schedule, featuring 18 stakes worth $1.4 million. The meet continues through Aug. 2.
Texas Champions Day, originally scheduled to be contested at Sam Houston Race Park Mar., but cancelled due to a blown transformer, will be hosted by Lone Star June 14. Texas Champions Day includes the Bara Lass S., Groovy S., Richard King Turf S., San Jacinto S., Spirit of Texas S., Star of Texas S. and Yellow Rose S. Three additional stakes-the Lone Star Park Turf S., Grand Prairie S. and Lone Star Mile-are scheduled for June 28. The Stars of Texas Preview July 5 features the Wayne Hanks Memorial, Lanes End Danny Shifflett Scholarship S. and the divisional Texas Stallion S., made up of a filly division and colt & gelding division. The final four stakes of the season will be contested July 26 as part of Stars of Texas Day. They are the Valor Farm S., Highlander Training Center Assault S. and Texas Thoroughbred Futurities, the filly division and the colt & gelding division. Each will run for an estimated purse of $100,000.
“We have worked closely with the Texas Horsemen’s Partnership and the Texas Thoroughbred Association to put together a schedule that benefits everyone, especially our horsemen,” said Lone Star Park’s Vice-President of Operations, Kent Slabotsky.
