24th horse dies at Southern California track
Santa Anita Park suspends racing indefinitely after 21st horse dies
Southern California’s Santa Anita Park has been shut down indefinitely so experts can study its dirt surface after 21 horses die in two months; Jonathan Hunt reports.
After six weeks without any deaths, a horse had to be euthanized Friday while training at the Santa Anita Racetrack in Southern California, marking the track’s 24th horse fatality since the beginning of the winter meet in December, according to a report.
Commander Coil suffered a shoulder injury during light practice, the Los Angeles Times reported. The 3-year-old gelding had not yet raced. A statement from the Stronach Group, which owns the track, called Commander Coil’s injury “uncommon.”
