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.
