Ellis Park officially under new ownership

HENDERSON CO., KY (WFIE) - Ellis Park officially has a new owner.

According to Amy Brannigan, Director of Marketing for Saratoga Casino and Hospitality Group,  the sale of Ellis Park is now complete and they are now the official owners.

Saratoga officials were in town on July 20 to talk meet with now-former owner Ron Geary to finalize the deal. Geary owned Ellis for 12 years, but Saratoga stepped in for the first time 6 years ago, buying 30 percent stake.

Geary says he wants to spend a little more time down south at his home in Florida. Saratoga officials say no jobs are in jeopardy.

We'll have more about the sale later today on 14 News.
