Churchill Downs evacuates horses

Almost nothing was spared from today's torrential rains, wind, hail and lightning, including Churchill Downs.  The historic track was forced to evacuate more than two dozen horses to other barns at the facility.

Large portions of the dirt and turf courses were under water, along with several other areas.  Track officials have said there will be no training Wednesday so that crews could look for possible damage to the main track and do any repair work that may be needed.
