Ellis Updates COVID-19 Protocols


Ellis Park

Ellis Park Racing & Gaming has increased track and racing protocols/testing requirements, effective immediately. All jockeys and valets must have a negative COVID-19 test result taken prior to being admitted to Ellis Park. Once a negative test is reported, they will not need additional testing unless they leave the local area, Kentucky or ride/race at another racetrack.

All backside entrants, including jockeys who do leave the local area or the state of Kentucky after their initial test, will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 48 hours before being re-admitted to Ellis Park.

All ship-ins will be directed to the receiving barn/assigned stall and horsemen directed to the receiving barn may not enter any other area of the barn area except the track kitchen for carry-out food only. Same day result testing is available in the Henderson area, however, appointments must be made in advance. For more information or a reservation, visit www.firstcareclinics.com or call 270-854-3196.
