Breast cancer survivors celebrate

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Churchill Downs was decked out in pink Sunday. The Governor of Kentucky and his wife were at the track for the Horses for Hope race day.

It's the third year in a row for the pink event during the fall meet. About 800 cancer survivors and their guests, many dressed in shades of pink, came to the event held at the Downs by Horses for Hope, a project of Kentucky first lady Jane Beshear and the Kentucky Cancer Program.

The event featured a luncheon buffet on Millionaires Row for breast cancer survivors and a parade of pink horses in the paddock.
