Eight-races are on tap at Ellis Park on Friday, August 5, as the Henderson, KY racetrack jump starts a weekend of Thoroughbred racing action in the Tri-State Area.

The featured seventh race on the program is a $61,000 allowance affair for three-year-olds that have never won two races. Originally scheduled to be run on the turf, the race has been taken off the grass and will be contested at an eight-furlong trip on the main track.

Paradise Farms Corp. et al’s St Andrews, a non-threatening seventh at 5-1 in his most recent start at Churchill Downs on June 12, is the 3-1 morning line favorite in a field that attracted 10 entrants. Jockey Gerardo Corrales is named on the bay son of Quality Road for trainer Mike Maker.
