Ellis Park draws the proverbial curtain on a weekend of live Thoroughbred racing in the Tri-State area on Sunday, August 1, but not before the Henderson, Ky. racetrack plays host to an eight-race program.

The featured eighth race on the card is a $52,000 first-tier allowance event for three-year-olds and upward sprinting 5.5-furlongs on the turf.

RSLP Racing, LLC et al’s Flags Up, who will make his turf debut, is the 5-2 morning line favorite in a field that attracted nine entrants. James Graham has the call on the three-year-old gray son of Honor Code for veteran conditioner Jimmy Baker.
