Twister Hits Kentucky Derby Track

It was a free-for-all at Kentucky’s Churchill Downs on Wednesday night after a twister hit and knocked down a few barns, sending horses scattering at the racetrack that hosts the Kentucky Derby each year. At least five barns were damaged, but all of the stables’ 1,300 horses have been recovered and put safely back in their stalls. The storm was part of a flash of twisters that swept across Louisville Wednesday night. No injuries were reported, and the track’s famous twin spires were spared.
