ELLIS PARK
Ellis Park proudly announces, “In 2016, Ellis Park’s juvenile racing program helped launch the careers of Daddys Lil Darling, Lookin at Lee, Not This Time, and Senior Investment. Based off the success in 2016, Ellis Park is restoring a 2-year-old filly stakes for its 2017 summer meet that runs July 1 through Sept. 4. The $75,000 Ellis Park Debutante is the sister race to the $75,000 Ellis Park Juvenile, which was brought back last year after being on hiatus since 2008.

The 2-year-old stakes, both at seven-eighths of a mile, will be run Sunday, Aug. 20. Also moving from a Saturday to Sunday, Aug. 13, is the $100,000, Grade 3 Groupie Doll for fillies and mares, the meet’s marquee race. The $50,000 Cliff Guilliams Handicap on turf has been moved up from Labor Day to the Groupie Doll card.

The Debutante and Juvenile are four weeks before Churchill Downs’ Grade 3 Iroquois and Grade 2 Pocahontas, positioning them as launching pads to those Breeders’ Cup qualifying races.”

*** IMPORTANT NOTICE to Interbets Account Holders:
Get Ready! The Great Interbets Conversion is coming soon. It’s an exciting, new day at Interbets.com.

The website will sport our new look very soon along with our all new “next generation” wagering platform. Our full conversion of the website, PC wagering, and Mobile App wagering will begin shortly. At that time, your account must be converted too.

You’ll find the new wagering platform is intuitive, offers more information all on one screen (no multiple open tabs), and can display three different live track video streams on one PC screen too! Open the boxes you want to see or minimize the extras off your screen. Most desired of all, the mobile app is state-of-the-art and easy to use.

While you get acquainted with the new format there will be temporary access to the current style “old school” wagering site. We plan to offer both platforms while everyone gets converted and adjusted.  There will be a temporary link on the new website to “old school” wagering. Convert and get acquainted with the new system as soon as you see the website change. During the conversion period, you can take your time to learn the new system and still bet “old school” with the old system as needed.

“You’re going to love it!”

Questions?  Call customer service Monday – Friday 9am-4pm.

~ Weekend Highlights…
“Horseplayers will be greeted with a two-day Pick 6 carryover of $68,022 for Friday’s twilight live racing program at Belmont Park. On Thursday, only one favorite won a leg of the Pick 6 as Gucci Factor ($4.30) took race 6. The sequence was blown up when 95-1 longshot Bigkat and Camille upset the second leg in race 5 returning $193.50 for a $2 win wager, to ultimately trigger the two-day carryover.  A consolation payout of $3,134 was awarded to bettors who had five of six winners.  The Pick 6 will begin with Race 4 on Friday, with a scheduled post time of 4:41 p.m. EDT.  First post is at 3:05 p.m”  ~ NYRA press release 6-15-17   Belmont offers the Dancing Renee Saturday.
