Two-year-olds will be in the spotlight on Sunday, August 20 at Ellis Park in Henderson, Ky., as the customary nine-race program is peppered with juvenile races including a pair of black-type events– the $75,000 Ellis Park Debutante for two-year-old fillies, and the $75,000 Ellis Park Juvenile for two-year-olds. Both races will be contested at a seven-furlong trip on the main track.
The card also features a $2,099 carryover in the Super High Five wager.
