CYPRESS (CNS) - The second of two horses vanned off with injuries in the same race at Los Alamitos on Sunday has died, state officials confirmed today.

Not This World, a 2-year-old filly with 10 starts and one first-place finish, was injured during Sunday's seventh race, in which Conchita, another 2-year-old filly with four starts and one first-place finish, suffered a fatal injury.

Orlando Gutierrez, a spokesman for Los Alamitos Race Course, said Monday that Not This World was ``doing well,'' but the California Horse Racing Board reported Thursday that she died.

Both horses were owned by Ed Allred, who also owns Los Alamitos Race Course. Not This World was trained by Elena Andrade, and her jockey was Diego Herrera.

She is the 11th horse to die from a racing or training injury at the Cypress track this year.

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 died due to gastrointestinal and other types of illnesses.

they need to get to the bottom of it,start checking for enhancement of drugs. so many horses have died there has to be a correlation with them all. it also seems hushed they don't tell. they've have got to be doing something to those horses. the owner has to trust the trainer/manager and they just do what they can get away with until they get caught. it's called winning at all cost.
