HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) – Country music star Toby Keith was at Ellis Park Saturday to watch one of his horses run before performing at Evansville’s Ford Center.
Shell Fire, who runs in the name of Keith’s Dream Walking Farms, finished third in the second race.
Keith only had one complaint.
“So we’re at Ellis park and we ran third but we’ll run first at the concert tonight. The only negative comment I have about these wonderful people is they don’t have any red solo cups. Cheers,” said Keith.
Toby Keith last was at Ellis Park in 2003 when the Bret Calhoun-trained Cactus Ridge came in to win the Ellis Park juvenile.
