Tribe sinks $7M into refurbishing Oklahoma racetrack

By Murry Evans
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (AP)

A subsidiary of the Chickasaw Nation has spent more than $7 million in recent months to restore Remington Park, a top official with the track’s ownership group said August 10.

Even as horses went through morning workouts on the racetrack, construction workers continued buzzing around the 22-year-old facility to complete the initial stage of renovations before the opening of the track’s annual thoroughbred met August 12.

Remington Park once was considered one of the nation’s finest racing facilities, and “it’s so gratifying to be able to have the money to restore this place to its former glory,” said Scott Wells, the track’s president and general manager.

These articles are very interesting in how it shows the tribes contribution and gains from the gaming industry. Most people do not understand that it is not all one-sided. Yes, the income helps the Chickasaw tribal preservation, but they also give back in many more ways. Of course, it it were not from tribal gaming or racing venues like this, there would be less options to choose from. Less options means more of a monopoly in that market. It is a win-win.
