Racehorse Bucked Jockey, Broke Out of Track, Got Caught, Survived Stable Fire
Ellis Park is a horse racing track and gaming center on the Kentucky-Indiana border, and one horse has given them a hell of a PR issue this weekend.
On Saturday, a 2-year-old horse named Bold and Bossy decided she wasn't going to be running in the race today, or ever. She bucked her jockey, ran through the barn area and levee before she hopped a fence and was caught on video running down the interstate.
Bold and Bossy was caught and brought back to the stables.
That night, the track's stable that Bold and Bossy was staying in caught fire, and was fully involved by the time fire officials arrived. Bold and Bossy and the rest of the horses in the stable were able to escape with the help of an unknown good Samaritan.
Fire officials believe the fire was "electrical in nature," with no criminal intent involved suspected.
Bold and Bossy was treated for some minor burns, but nothing major, and she's expected to make a full recovery.
