Ellis Park Earns Initial NTRA Safety, Integrity Alliance Accreditation
Ellis Park, in Henderson, Kentucky, has received its initial accreditation from the National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) Safety & Integrity Alliance.
This brings the number of active accredited racetracks in the United States and Canada to 24, including every Thoroughbred track in Kentucky.
“On behalf of the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission (KHRC) and its Safety and Welfare Committee we appreciate the commitment from each of Kentucky’s racetracks to achieve accreditation,” said Hall of Fame jockey Pat Day, chair of the KHRC Safety and Welfare Committee. “We look forward to a continued partnership with all of Kentucky’s tracks, our horsemen, and the Safety & Integrity Alliance in promoting the safety of our athletes and the integrity of our racing.”
Located in Henderson, just south of Evansville, Indiana, Ellis Park is owned by Saratoga Casino & Hospitality Group, the former minority owner which purchased the track outright last month. The 2018 live race meet runs through Sept. 3, Fridays to Sundays, plus the special Closing Day holiday program on Labor Day, Sept. 3, with no racing Sept. 1. Historical horse racing and simulcast wagering are available seven days per week
