NEW ALBANY, Ind. - Southern Indiana police are investigating the theft of a life-size statue of a horse that won the Kentucky Derby more than 100 years ago.
The statue of 1901 Derby winner His Eminence was discovered missing Friday from outside a real estate office in New Albany.
Office building owner Pat Harrison won the statue at Louisville's annual Gallapalooza fundraiser in 2004 and it's stood outside her building ever since sporting a red-and-white jacket and similarly-colored crown.
New Albany Police Chief Todd Bailey says detectives are following leads and hoping for tips from anyone who may have noticed the large statue being moved.
