LOUISVILLE, Kentucky — And they’re off to jail!
A blustering drunk stumblebum was busted after he climbed onto a horse at Churchill Downs race track and nearly rode on to the track for the Breeders’ Cup.

But before he could get out to the gate, officers spotted him and placed him under arrest
According to the arrest citation, Wells-Rody was “under the influence of alcohol” and was “loud and disorderly” to Churchill Downs staff.
