Kentucky HBPA College Day is back at Ellis Park this Sunday after a COVID-19 forced year hiatus.
Full-time college students can enter a drawing to win an iPad Mini or a $1,000 scholarship after each of Sunday's races.
The Kentucky Horsemen's Benevolent & Protective Association, which represents racehorse owners and trainers at the state's five Thoroughbred tracks, is sponsoring the iPad Mini giveaway and is teaming with Ellis Park for the $1,000 scholarships.
“College Day is an investment in our industry's future,” said Marty Maline, executive director of the Kentucky HBPA. “This is a promotion we're committed to building on. We believe if we can get college students to come to the track for the first time that we'll see them return. These could be our future horse owners, racetrack executives and horsemen–and certainly our next generation of racing fans.”
