Track Info

Ellis Park is a thoroughbred racetrack in Henderson, Kentucky, just south of Evansville, Indiana. An unusual fact about the track is that it actually lies north of the Ohio River, which forms the border between Kentucky and Indiana. However, the state border is based on the course of the river as it existed when Kentucky became a state in 1792. Due to the New Madrid earthquake of 1812, the Ohio changed course to the south, leaving the land that would later house Ellis Park separated from the remainder of Kentucky by the river. The racetrack actually uses Indiana's 812 area code despite officially being located in Kentucky.

The track was designed after Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York and features a 1 1/8 mile dirt track. The track features chutes for seven furlong and one mile races. A one mile turf course was installed in 1993. The facility is 210-acres and has a 6,000 seat grandstand and 38 barns. It is the only track in the country to contain a one-mile chute at a 90-degree angle by the first turn. This is because Saratoga Race Course used to have this type of chute to run one-mile races, called the Wilson Chute.
