ARCADIA — A 5-year-old gelding died after fracturing an ankle throughout a race at Santa Anita Park, officers confirmed.
Mantra “pulled up in misery” throughout Sunday’s ninth race, Santa Anita mentioned. The horse crossed the wire, ending final, then was vanned off and later euthanized with a fractured proper entrance ankle.
Mantra was owned by J&G Stables LLC and Nicholas Vaccarezza, and educated by Carlo Vaccarezza. His jockey on Sunday was Alexis Centeno.
Mantra had 24 races in his profession, with two first-place finishes.
He’s the sixth horse to die throughout Santa Anita’s winter/spring assembly.
The monitor is getting ready to welcome followers again to the stands on April 2 after being closed to the general public for slightly greater than a 12 months due to the coronavirus pandemic.
