NYRA completed a major renovation of the Oklahoma practice track in 2021. The project included a complete reconstruction of the track surface as well as the installation of a limestone base and drainage system modernized.
The training track has also been widened by 10 to 14 feet in most areas to accommodate the growing population of horses that train on the track each year from April to November.
