Lone Star Park Releases Spring Thoroughbred Season Stakes Schedule

(Grand Prairie, Texas - Thursday, February 5, 2015) - Lone Star Park will open its 2015 Spring Thoroughbred Meet on April 9. The 50-day meet will run through July 19 and will offer 11 stakes races worth a total of $1 million.

The Grade 3, $200,000 Texas Mile is the co-richest race of the meet. It will be run on a Friday night for the first time this season at Lone Star Park, on April 24. The other co-richest race of the meet will be the Grade 3, $200,000 Lone Star Park Handicap on Memorial Day, May 25.

Last year, Grand Contender won both the Texas Mile and the Lone Star Park Handicap.

Those races, along with the $175,000 Governor’s Cup in August at sister track Remington Park, will again be linked to form the Global Gaming Triple. There is no bonus this year, but incentives include no start fees for participation in more than one race.

Lone Star’s stakes schedule also includes the Stars of Texas program of four restricted stakes worth a cumulative $300,000 on July 11.

Lone Star stall applications are due February 25.

Lone Star's stable area opens as a training center on March 9. It opens for meet stabling on March 23, and the Fasig-Tipton Texas sale of two-year-olds in training is scheduled for March 31.
