The 19th annual Track Superintendents Field Day, originally scheduled for this coming Sept. 14-16, has been rescheduled for March 2021. The event will still be held at Remington Park in Oklahoma City and hosted by that track's superintendent, Bob Blackburn.
The Field Day brings together track superintendents and their crews from around North America and beyond to share ideas and information about track maintenance, safety, equipment and more. Last year's event at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races in West Virginia attracted more than 100 track superintendents and staff from American Quarter Horse, Thoroughbred and Standardbred tracks in the United States, Canada and beyond.
“Every track superintendent takes safety seriously, so in light of the current health situation and with many tracks' racing schedules in flux, we made the decision to postpone the Field Day,” said Roy Smith, track superintendent at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino and founder of the event.
“We are looking forward to hosting the group,” said Bob Blackburn of Remington Park. “While I am disappointed that we have to delay this great event, it is the prudent course to take. Everyone at Remington Park is excited to show all the superintendents what Oklahoma hospitality is all about.”
