Retama schedules six stakes during meet


Retama Park near San Antonio will have six stakes for Thoroughbreds during its meet, which opens Sept. 1.

James Leatherman, the track’s racing secretary, said the El Joven and La Senorita, which are longtime fixtures for 2-year-olds on turf, are scheduled for Oct. 14. The Texas Horse Racing Hall of Fame Stakes and Fiesta Mile will share a card Oct. 21. Retama also has a pair of 2-year-old divisions of the Texas Stallion Stakes on Nov. 4.

Leatherman said Retama will race Friday and Saturday nights through Nov. 11.

The track is in the midst of a Quarter Horse meet and has four stakes Friday night and two major stakes Saturday night, led by the $435,680 Texas Quarter Horse Association Sale Futurity.
