Horse euthanized after collapsing on Oklahoma racetrack


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.
