On Saturday night, a Kentucky man was arrested for drunk attempting to ride the racecourse in Churchill Downs during the Breeders Cup.
Michael Wells-Rody, 24, was charged with public poisoning and disorderly behavior and taken to a jail near the Louisville Circuit. The Kentucky State Police said in a statement of arrest that he had "apparently been under the influence of alcoholic beverages" when he "sneaked into a restricted area where he was not authorized" and boarded a horse.
Wells-Rody made it out of the tunnel and made it to the driveway before it was stopped. "When asked to leave the horse and the area," the police said in the quote, "the topic became loud and messy by alerting a Churchill employee."
Churchill Downs, famous for its annual role as the venue for the Kentucky Derby, has hosted the Breeders' Cup for the ninth time since the event began. Accelerate was the big winner this year; The 5-year-old horse won the $ 6 Million Breeders Cup Classic and supported his Horse of the Year ambition over Triple Crown winner Justify.
Wells-Rody is expected to appear in court on Monday for reports.
