A new horse racing season is underway and already, a young horse has died. According to the Los Angeles Times, a two-year-old colt named Ebeko broke his leg in Santa Anita, California, while running in the Eddie Logan Stakes on Sunday.

The break, in the colt’s front left leg, was deemed to be “too serious” and he was euthanized after falling to the grass. The life-ending race was the colt’s eighth; he had earned $122,430 in his short life.

According to the Times, Ebeko’s death marked the 16th racing death at Santa Anita this year – last year there were 37 deaths at the beleaguered track. This racing season started on Saturday, December 26.
