Saratoga Casino and Hospitality Group Now Owns 100% of Ellis Park

July 18, 2018

Kentucky Regulators approved the member-interest purchase of Ellis Park Racetrack to New York-based Saratoga Casino and Hospitality Group. McBrayer Attorney Emily Cowles managed the deal for Saratoga Group, previously a minority interest holder, to purchase the track from majority stakeholder, Ron Geary. 

Located in Henderson, Kentucky, Ellis Park is a key player in the thoroughbred racing circuit, which keeps many horses here in the Commonwealth year round. With the new owner group's broad understanding and experience of the industry, the sale is a win-win that is sure to keep Ellis Park on-track for racing fans and key stakeholders on Kentucky and beyond. 

McBrayer Attorneys Tom Flanigan, Lindsey Anderson Quijano and Stephen Amato also brought their experience to the agreement, taking a team approach to provide outstanding service for this undertaking.
