Ellis Park's Man Behind the Music

For 27 years, Brett Birkhead has been playing his trumpet at the horse track as Ellis Park's bugler.

Birkhead is an Evansville native, and he graduated with a music degree from Indiana University.

When he's not playing at Ellis Park, Birkhead earns a living as a freelance musician.

Along with "Call to the Post," Birkhead has over 30 songs that he plays for the horse racing fans at the park.
