Ron Geary sells Majority Stake in Ellis Park

Racing community grateful Ron Geary saved Ellis Park, optimistic about new owners.

Geary became the face of an ownership group that purchased Henderson’s Ellis Park from Churchill Downs back in 2006. The thoroughbred racing facility was ailing at the time, draining Churchill’s resources. But it prospered under Geary.

“The track is 100 percent better than when he bought it,” local horse owner Randy Sellers said. “The purses are better; we have quality races. I like what he did with it.”
