Breeders’ Cup Oddity: Man Arrested For Trying To Ride Horse Onto Track At Churchill

One of the strangest stories to come out of the weekend’s Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Churchill Downs was that of Georgetown man Michael Wells-Rody’s Saturday adventure.

According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, the 24-year-old’s arrest citation stated that he “was manifestly under the influence of alcoholic beverages” when he “snuck into a restricted area he was not authorized to be in” and took off on a (lead pony) horse.

Kentucky State Police said that Wells-Rody made it from the tunnel beneath the grandstand almost out to the racetrack area.

He was charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
