Ellis Entertainment, the company that owns Ellis Park in Henderson, will open a historical racing machine (“HRM”) entertainment venue in Owensboro.

The site of the new gaming and gambling venue will be a 60,000-square-foot facility located inside Owensboro's Towne Square Mall development.

Construction of Ellis Entertainment Owensboro is planned to begin in early 2022 with an anticipated opening date in early 2023.

The $20 million project is expected to create more than 100 full-time jobs once the facility opens.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
