A 3-year-old filly has been euthanized after fracturing an ankle while training at Santa Anita, horse racing officials said Tuesday.

Gutz, who had one race in her career — a fifth-place finish at Santa Anita on June 4 — broke her right front ankle on Sunday.

The horse “was triaged by track veterinarians and a diagnostic examination determined that it was an unrecoverable injury,” according to Santa Anita’s website.

She was owned by Tommy Hutton’s Dream Stable LLC and trained by William Spawr.

Eleven horses died from a racing or training injury during the Arcadia track’s winter/spring meeting, which concluded on June 20.

Since then, two horses have died while training — Gutz and Uncle Boogie, a 3-year-old colt who was euthanized on June 27.
