Ellis Park opens Saturday, increases purses
HENDERSON, Ky. - In past years, trainer John Hancock likely would have sold Midnight Chica and Whole Scoop, his 2-year-old fillies that impressively won their racing debuts at Keeneland and Indiana Grand.

But with Ellis Park raising its purses and reinstating the $75,000 Ellis Park Juvenile for its 2016 summer meet, Hancock is hanging on to his promising babies. That's in contrast to last year, when he gave Cocked and Loaded his early training at Ellis Park before the colt won his first start at Keeneland and subsequently was sold to Chicago-based Larry Rivelli, who promptly won Belmont Park's Tremont and later Churchill Downs' Grade 3 Iroquois.
