One of two horses vanned off with injuries in the same race at Los Alamitos on Sunday has died, state officials confirmed Monday.
Conchita, a 2-year-old filly with four starts and one first-place finish, fell during Sunday’s seventh race, which also included an unspecified injury to Not This World, another 2-year-old filly.
Both horses are owned by Ed Allred, who also owns Los Alamitos Race Course.
A third horse, Ballast Point, was vanned off after Saturday’s 10th race.
“Both Not This World and Ballast Point are doing well,” Orlando Gutierrez, a spokesman for Los Alamitos Race Course, said Monday.
Conchita was trained by James Glenn Jr. Her jockey was Henry Lopez. She is the 10th horse to die from a racing or training injury at the Cypress track this year, according to the California Horse Racing Board.
The track was briefly placed on probation by the CHRB on July 10, 2020 due to a spate of racehorse deaths. At that time at least 20 horses had died at the track in 2020 after suffering racing or training injuries, and another 10 had succumbed to gastrointestinal and other types of illnesses.
