Keeneland Racecourse closed its training hours Monday morning after a 2-year-old crashed into the main track's inside rail on the backstretch between 8:30 and 9 a.m., damaging the rail. Neither the horse, a Pulpit-Medicine Woman colt slated to sell at Keeneland's April 13 juvenile auction, nor his exercise rider suffered any life-threatening injury, according to a source at the track, but the rail needed repairs.
