Remington’s Springboard Mile Figures to be Key Oaklawn Prep

December 08, 2011

Saturday’s $300,000 Springboard Mile at Remington Park figures to once again live up to its name with 10 of the 12 horses entered coming from barns headed to Hot Springs. Last year, three horses used this Remington race as a “springboard” into the Smarty Jones Stakes, the first in Oaklawn’s rich 3-year-old series, scheduled for Jan. 16, 2012. Caleb’s Posse rebounded from a poor race at Remington to win the Smarty Jones and the Donnie K.
