LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Police say a body has been found in the backside area at Churchill Downs, a few barns away from where Kentucky Derby winner I'll Have Another is kept.

Louisville police spokeswoman Alicia Smiley says authorities were called early Sunday morning to a barn on the backside of the track where the derby took place the night before.

Smiley says police are conducting a death investigation, and a coroner had been called to the scene. She says the body is believed to be a man.

The investigation is under way at barn eight, just four barns away from where I'll Have Another is kept.

About a week after the Kentucky Derby last year, jockey Michael Baze's body was found in a vehicle near the stables at the famed Louisville track. His death was ruled an accidental overdose.
