Nine races are on tap at Ellis Park on Saturday, July 9, as a weekend of live Thoroughbred racing action continues at the Henderson, KY racetrack.

The featured fifth race on the program is the $60,000 Pea Patch Stakes for three-year-old fillies sprinting 5.5-furlongs on the turf.

J D Farms’ Devine Charger, second, beaten a head in her last start at 31-1 in the Mamzelle Stakes at Churchill Downs on May 14, is the 5-2 morning line choice in a field that attracted seven entrants. Jockey Gabriel Saez has the call on the gray daughter of Will Take Charge for trainer Jordan Blair.
