Flash flooding has left part of the famed Churchill Downs track under water, and some horses stabled at the Louisville track were moved elsewhere due to high water.

Churchill spokesman John Asher says "a big chunk" of the track is under water after a thunderstorm dumped several inches of rain on Louisville within a couple of hours Tuesday morning.

Asher says high water forced about 30 to 35 horses to be moved from two barns. He says there were no reported injuries to humans or horses.

Churchill is between live racing meets, and the track was closed Tuesday.

Asher says high water in a couple of barns forced some thoroughbreds to be moved to a nearby facility.

Vehicles parked in the track parking lot were submerged or partially submerged after the deluge.
