LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A Churchill Downs employee had to chase down a loose horse before a race Friday.

You can see it in the picture - lead outrider Greg Blasi grabbed on to a 4-year-old filly's saddle with one hand and was able to procure her while riding his pony. 

Yodel broke through the starting gate and dumped her jockey right before a one-mile turf race. 

As a precaution, Yodel was scratched from the race.
