New sale to offer at least horses


The catalog for the inaugural Oklahoma City Summer Thoroughbred yearling sale on Aug.18 is expected to number between 50 and 60 horses, said sales manager Terri Carter. Consignments closed last Friday, with catalogs due out July 10.

The sale will be held at a new, state-of-the-art sales pavilion at the state fairgrounds in Oklahoma City, about 10 minutes from Remington Park.

The sale will begin at 11 a.m. Central.

* The paint horse Got Country Grip improved his career record to 14 for 14 on May 27, when he won the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum Stakes at Remington. With the victory he tied a Quarter Horse mark of 14 career wins without a loss. He shares that record with Josie’s Bar, Destiny Drummer, and Pies Royal Request, each of whom lost in their 15th start.

Got Country Grip’s last win came in a mixed breed race at 440 yards, a distance he covered in 21.66 seconds. G.R. Carter was aboard for the win for trainer Brandon Parum.

* Remington has opened its seventh offtrack betting parlor. It is located at Sanford’s Steakhouse in Kingston, Okla., in the Lake Texoma resort region in southern Oklahoma.
