An eight-race program is on tap at Ellis Park in Henderson, Ky. on Friday, August 27, kicking-off a weekend of Thoroughbred racing action in the Tri-State area.

The fifth race on the card–the nominal feature–is a $50,000 starter allowance contest for three-year-olds and upward slated for an eight-furlong trip on the main track.

Greg Frye and Wesley Hawley’s Tkotchke, who will try to garner his first win of 2021, is the prohibitive 8-5 morning line favorite in a compact field of six. Jockey Miguel Mena has the call on the three-year-old bay son of Frosted for trainer Wesley Hawley.

Post time for the first of eight races is 12:50 P.M. (Central).
