Louisville Police confirm that a man was killed at Churchill Downs – in the same stable area where the horses that ran yesterday’s (Saturday’s) Kentucky Derby have been staying.

A spokeswoman, confirming the death was by homicide.  She said until the coroner releases a name, all she could say is that it was a Hispanic man, and ruled out that it was a jockey.  As of late morning, there was no suspect or arrest in the case.

The body was found before dawn by a member of the security team at the track, only hours after 165,000 people attended the Kentucky Derby.
