CYPRESS, Calif.—One of two horses vanned off with injuries in the same race at Los Alamitos has died Nov. 28, state officials confirmed.

Conchita, a 2-year-old filly with four starts and one first-place finish, fell during Sunday’s seventh race, which also included an unspecified injury to Not This World, another 2-year-old filly.

Both horses are owned by Ed Allred, who also owns Los Alamitos Race Course.

No information was available Monday on Not This World’s condition.

Conchita was trained by James Glenn Jr. Her jockey was Henry Lopez.

She is the 10th horse to die from a racing or training injury at the Cypress track this year, according to the California Horse Racing Board.

The track was briefly placed on probation by the racing board on July 10, 2020, due to a spate of racehorse deaths.

At that time, at least 20 horses died at the track in 2020 after suffering racing or training injuries, and another 10 succumbed to gastrointestinal and other types of illnesses.
