The Library Lecture Series Presents: Kentucky Horse Tales

July 23, 2019

On July 23, Ellis will share stories from more than seven decades in the industry with a book signing of his July release, Kentucky Horse Tales.


According to Keeneland magazine, “Ellis has hosted his two-hour ‘Horse Tales’ show since 1998, most recently from the offices of the Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association at Keeneland-owned The Thoroughbred Center. Its laid-back, folksy blend of special guests, chirpy banter and homespun stories – sprung mostly from the depths of Ellis’ encyclopedic memory of horse racing and breeding history – have turned the show into a must-listen among insiders and the host himself into a Bluegrass icon.”
