JOHNSON IS FIRST TO ARRIVE WITH HORSES ON INITIAL DAY OF STABLE ACCESS AT REMINGTON PARK

Oklahoma City, OK -- February 4, 2019 – In what has become an annual occurrence at Remington Park, trainer Tammy Johnson again the first to arrive and bring horses into the stable area. Today is the first day for trainers to stall horses in anticipation of the upcoming 2019 American Quarter Horse, Paint and Appaloosa Season.

Johnson passed through the Remington Park stable gate at 12:04am with 10 horses after a six-hour journey from her farm in Gatesville, Texas. She plans to have 19 horses comfortable in their stalls here after another trip from her home base, about 30 miles west of Waco, Texas. 

Johnson has been the first trainer with horses to arrive on the first day at Remington Park for three consecutive years (2017-2019). Her operation has found great success in Oklahoma City in recent seasons, including stakes wins in 2018 with Rock About It in the SLM Big Daddy Stakes and Jess A Hilbily Bone in the Pauls Valley Stakes, then a Grade 3 race, going around the turn at 870 yards. The Pauls Valley Stakes is slated to be a Grade 2 event for the upcoming season. 

Johnson posted eight wins, 13 seconds and 8 third-place runs from 60 starters at Remington Park in 2018 with total earnings of $220,929.

The 2019 Remington Park Quarter Horse Season begins on Friday, March 8 and continues for 50 dates, through Saturday, June 1.
