The horses’ first romp around the Oklahoma Training Track this morning was chilly, but they didn’t seem to mind.

A few horses jogged around the frozen track in an easy first workout of the season. But most of the barns were still empty, as more thoroughbreds are expected to arrive this week and next week from Belmont Park and Aqueduct downstate and from tracks in Florida.

The early training precedes the 140th season at Saratoga Race Course, which begins Wednesday, July 23 and runs through Labor Day, Sept. 1.
