Steeped in tradition and always exciting, Ellis Park Race Track is just minutes from Downtown Evansville. Built in 1922 and owned by Churchill Downs, Ellis Park runs live Thoroughbred races from July through Labor Day with simulcast racing available year round. Recent renovations of the facility enhanced her graceful gables and twin spires providing an elegant signature for this Kentucky landmark. Watch some of racing's finest from the air-conditioned comfort of the clubhouse or the open gallery alongside the track.
