- The last safe day to test for the Remington Park Futurity and Derby is March 14th.
- Once samples are sent to the lab (they are shipped daily), OQHRA has no information on the tests. We do not get results and we have no correspondence from the lab to know what days are back or when they will be back. Only the racing office knows the official good through date. The racing office has no information on positive tests. All positive tests go to the Remington Park Executive Offices and they will contact trainers who have a positive test.
*** The Oklahoma Derby Conditions were amended to read: THE TOP 15 qualifiers for the 2020 Derby based on trial times will have hair collected and re-tested after the trials and prior to the final. Any horse failing to produce a clean hair test free of prohibited substances will not be eligible to enter the final regardless of the qualifying time. ***
