A customary nine-race program is on the docket at Ellis Park on Saturday, July 23, as a weekend of live Thoroughbred racing continues at the historic Henderson, KY racetrack. Due to excessive heat, post times for the weekend cards have been moved up to 10:30 A.M. (Central).

The featured seventh race on the program is a $40,000 optional claiming / “money since” allowance contest for three-year-olds and upward sprinting 5.5-furlongs on the turf.

Paradise Farms Corp. and David Staudacher’s Bad Beat Brian, second in his most recent start at Churchill Downs on May 30, is the definitive 6-5 morning line favorite in a field that attracted nine entrants. Jockey Martin Garcia will be astride the five-year-old chestnut son of Jack Milton for trainer Mike Maker.
