    About Ellis Park Racetrack


    If you want to see one of Kentucky’s finest racetracks, you actually have to go to Indiana – or do you? Ellis Park was built in 1922 on the north side of the Ohio River, which forms the boundary between the two states – or at least it did in 1792 when Kentucky joined the union. The river keeps shifting, so the border keeps getting redrawn as the states haggle over territory.


    Officially based in Henderson, Kentucky, Ellis Park was first imagined as a stop-over for horseplayers on their way to the winter session in New Orleans. That turned out to be a bad business move, and the track was forced to shut down after just three years. Local businessman James Ellis bought the track (then called Dade Park) in 1925, built a terrace grandstand and introduced pari-mutual betting. The facility was renamed in his honor in 1954.


    Louisville-native and sports fan, Ron Geary, bought the track from Churchill Downs, Inc. in 2006. Geary has threatened more than once to close operations because of mounting debts and a lack of purse money, but as of 2012, Ellis Park was still open for thoroughbred racing between July and September.


    Ellis Park was based on the design for the Saratoga Race Course in New York. The main track is nine furlongs of dirt, with a one-mile turf course added in 1993. The highlight of the racing year is the $100,000 Grade 3 Gardenia Stakes (one mile, dirt, 3-year-olds and up) for fillies and mares. This is the only graded stakes run at Ellis Park and one of just four stakes races on the calendar.
