Ellis Park Race Course

Ellis Park Race Course

When Ellis Park was constructed in Henderson, Kentucky in the early 1920's, it was modeled with the famous Saratoga Race Track in mind. Today, Ellis Park still runs a live Thoroughbred horse racing summer meet, in addition to year-round Instant Racing Machine action and simulcast races, accommodating visitors of all ages and everything from novice to expert horse players.

For sheer thrills and excitement, nothing in all of sports matches a day of live Thoroughbred racing or watch races from around the country in our Simulcast Clubhouse. Admission to the Grandstand and Clubhouse is free.  Reservations for the Sky Theatre, Turf Club, Gardenia Room, and Thoroughbred Room can be made by contacting Admissions at 812-435-8918.
