Remington Park officials say they were initially given the wrong name for the horse that was euthanized. The story has been updated with the correct name.

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) — Officials said a horse was euthanized after collapsing while racing at Remington Park on Sunday.

Remington Park officials say Beach N Front, a 2-year-old filly, collapsed in race 4 at Remington Park.

They initially identified the horse as Mrs. Kiddy, but that horse was unharmed in the incident.

An ambulance arrived and took Beach N Front to the test barn for an examination.

Several hours later, track officials learned that after a thorough evaluation by veterinarians, the horse had been euthanized.

“We extend our deepest condolences to [the horse’s] owner and all those involved in its care and training. As with any live racing incident and in accordance with OHRC regulations, a necropsy will be performed to determine if the horse may have had a pre-existing injury not detected during pre-race exams which are standard for all racehorses. at Remington Park. We will fully cooperate with any related inquiries the OHRC may have in its investigation,” read a statement from Kym Koch, spokesperson for Remington Park.
