A scheduling conflict could put Ellis Park's usual July 4th opening weekend in jeopardy. The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission is working to resolve a scheduling conflict to between Churchill Downs and Kentucky Downs.
Officials say those two tracks have requested overlapping racing dates in September of next year. But Kentucky Downs wants to change some of it's racing dates to July, also when Ellis races.
The KHRC has delayed approving Ellis Park's racing dates until it's next meeting later this month as it works through the conflict.
