A 3-year-old filly was euthanized Sunday after injuring a leg during a race at the Golden Gate Fields race track, a state racing official confirmed.
Snow Pack suffered the injury during Sunday’s fourth race at the Berkeley Track, said Mike Marten, a spokesman for the California Horse Racing Board. A Vimeo video of that race shows the horse pulling up during the race. The horse was euthanized a short time later.
Data from the racing board shows that Sunday’s death was the 17th of a race horse at Golden Gate Fields so far in 2020. The most recent previous death was that of Street Gambler on June 30.
