Ellis Park | Coady

A day after an 'unexpected water issue' caused by Wednesday evening storms forced the closure to the public of Ellis Park in Henderson, Kentucky, track officials announced Friday morning that it would be business as usual for the afternoon's live program.

“Thank you to our staff, the local Henderson community and racing fans for their patience,” said Ellis Park General Manager Matt Pressley. “We're looking forward to seeing everyone out at the track [Friday].”

Strong storms passed through the region Wednesday night, causing a power outage to the grandstand that affected the water supply. Power was eventually restored, but water levels were insufficient to operate the facility.
