A racehorse got loose from a northern Kentucky racetrack and ended up in Evansville, Indiana after a jockey was bucked off. The horse was eventually corralled by the County Sheriff and the videos of the speeding thoroughbred are going viral on social media.

Of course, this is a dangerous situation for both the horse and drivers on the road. I hope everyone was alright in the incident. The horse started out a race at a track in Kentucky and ended up taking the highway north up to Indiana.

Now, this isn't some backroad in the country incident. This horse was high-tailing it on the highway between Kentucky and Indiana.

At one point, the racehorse was even running against traffic. Pretty scary stuff if you are flying down the highway.
