A horse hurt in a race Sunday at Los Alamitos Race Course sustained fatal injuries, according to state records.

Chickititas Favorite, a 3-year-old gelding, was injured on Sunday. The horse’s death was the first at the race course this month.

Radio Tim, a 3-year-old gelding, and Street Machine, a 5-year-old gelding, were injured on Feb. 21 and died.

Four horses sustained fatal injuries in January at the race course.

Horse racing has drawn scrutiny since 37 horses died at Santa Anita racetrack in Arcadia during the 2018-19 racing season.

Los Alamitos has drawn protests in recent months from animal rights activists who want to put an end to the sport.
