Crews Working On Water Main Break At Ellis; Horses Watered From Different Pump

Crews continue to work on the water main break that occurred at Ellis Park late Saturday afternoon and forced the track to close Sunday. The break has disrupted water flow to the grandstand and clubhouse areas.

Ellis Park racing secretary Dan Bork said the stable area has access to water, with water trucks filled from a different pump. That allowed the track surface to be properly watered and maintained for Sunday training and to provide for the horses’ care, he said.

“The leak is being worked on by professional crews,” Bork said. “Hopefully we’ll have a solution by end of the day. The plan is to resume live racing on Friday.”

Simulcast wagering and the historical horse racing gaming operation is closed until further notice, he said.

Ellis Park will provide updates as information becomes available.

Ellis Park has three remaining race dates: Friday Aug. 31, Sunday Sept. 2 and Labor Day, Sept. 3. There is no live racing on Saturday Sept. 1 to accommodate the opening of Kentucky Downs’ race meet.
