Heavy rain forces Ellis to cancel


Ellis Park canceled its nine-race Monday program when the western Kentucky track was inundated with heavy rain, leaving the racetrack and much of the facility unusable. Racing will resume Friday on a regular three-day-a-week schedule at 12:50 p.m. Central.

Ellis racing secretary Dan Bork said some of the races that were to be run Monday will be reposted and redrawn for Sunday. The meet, originally scheduled for 30 days, will run through Labor Day, Sept. 5.
