As a way of saying thanks to the men and women who have, and those who currently, put their lives on the line so the rest of us can enjoy our freedom, Ellis Park is inviting them out this Saturday for a day of live racing action and a free meal.

All active duty, reserve, and veterans, are welcome to stop by at any point throughout the day to grab up to four free meals for themselves and their families when they present their military ID, DD214, veteran ID card, or other form of ID at the Terrace Gate (North Entrance).

If the current forecast holds true, it should be a gorgeous day for racing with cloudy skies, a high of 82, and a slight chance (25%) of rain. The first race is set for 12:50pm.
