Fire Destroys Stable

By Compiled From Wire Services

A predawn fire engulfed a barn at Ellis Park race track, killing as many as 26 thoroughbreds. One stable groom was slightly burned trying to free horses from the flames.

Cause of the fire was unknown and arson investigators were summoned.

One of the best-known horses stabled at the track was Tejano Run. The 1995 Kentucky Derby runner-up had arrived at Ellis Park Friday for turf training, but was stabled in another barn at the track and was not injured.
