Another racehorse has been killed after suffering an injury at the Los Alamitos Race Course, state regulators said Wednesday.
Jabber Now, a 6-year-old thoroughbred, died Tuesday, according to the California Horse Racing Board. The horse finished last in the third race at Los Alamitos on Sunday, and official results from the track made no mention of any injury.
The CHRB’s fatality report lists his death as racing-related.
Attempts to reach Los Alamitos officials for further details were unsuccessful, and CHRB spokesman Mike Marten told City News Service he had no further information about the death.
According to the industry website Equibase, Jabber Now was owned by Oscar and Cathleen Serrano and trained by Gary Stute.
At least 15 racehorses have died at the Cypress track in racing or training-related incidents during this race season, which began in late December.
