A 10-race program featuring five stakes races with $600,000 worth of purse money is up for grabs at Ellis Park on Sunday, August 9– Runhappy Ellis Park Derby Day at the venerable Henderson, Ky. racetrack.

The five black type events include the $100,000 Runhappy Juvenile Stakes, the $100,000 Runhappy Debutante Stakes, the $100,000 Runhappy Audubon Oaks, the $100,000 Groupie Doll Stakes, and the $200,000 Runhappy Ellis Park Derby.

In the day’s marquis event–the $200,000 Ellis Park Derby–Bruce Lunsford’s Art Collector, a convincing winner of the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G2) at Keeneland in his last start, is the definitive  4-5 morning line choice in a full field of 12 entrants. Jockey Brian Hernandez, Jr. has the call on the three-year-old bay son of Bernardini for trainer Tommy Drury.
