Man accused of taking Breeders' Cup horse on joyride to have no contact with track
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man accused of mounting a horse and taking a short joyride at Churchill Downs at the Breeders' Cup last Saturday was in court Wednesday.
Police say 24-year-old Michael Wells-Rody was drunk when he snuck into a restricted area, mounted the horse and rode it out of the tunnel area and into the track entrance.
When he was asked to leave, police say he became loud and disorderly before he was arrested.
Wells-Rody is charged with alcohol intoxication in public and disorderly conduct.
During Wells-Rody's court appearance on Nov. 7, Judge Anne Delahanty ordered him to have no contact with the track. She added that it's not necessarily "forever."
Track officials have not yet responded to a request for comment.
