NEW YORK, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- Police in New York said a burglar at the Aqueduct Racetrack made off with items including a 1985 Breeders' Cup trophy.

Investigators said the trophy, two laptop computers, a flat screen TV and a flat screen monitor for "photo finish" results were taken in the burglary around 8 p.m. EST Thursday, the New York Daily News reported Monday.

Officials said the trophy was worth $5,000 when it was created 29 years ago to commemorate the Breeders' Cup victory of Proud Truth. The trophy is a replica of Giovanni da Bologna's Torrie horse, a statue made in the late 1580s.

It was unclear Monday how the thief broke into the facility.
