Drunk Man Arrested For Stealing Horse, Trying To Ride It At Breeder's Cup

The home of the Kentucky Derby saw some decadent and depraved behavior Saturday. During the Breeders’ Cup Classic, a reportedly-intoxicated Kentucky man (not quite Florida Man, but getting there!) snuck into a restricted area, climbed on top of a horse, and tried to ride it onto the track. Here’s more on that from Karla Ward of the Lexington Herald Leader:

A Georgetown man was arrested after police say he mounted a horse at Churchill Downs and tried to ride out onto the track during Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup racing.

Kentucky State Police said in an arrest citation that Michael Wells-Rody, 24, “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 horse.

He made it out of the tunnel area and “into the track entrance,” police said in the citation.

“When asked to leave the horse and the area, the subject became loud and disorderly by causing an alarm to Churchill staff members,” the citation states.
