ALBANY, Calif. (AP) - A 4-year-old filly died at Golden Gate Fields on Thursday, the second thoroughbred to die at the Northern California racetrack in two weeks.

The filly named Munny was trained by Blaine Wright, who also trained the other horse that died Jan. 28.

Munny had one win in nine career starts and earnings of $19,198. She finished third in her last start on Feb. 4 at the track.

The California Horse Racing Board’s website listed ‘other’ as the stated activity for Munny on Thursday, meaning her death did not occur during racing or training. Besides noting the weather was cloudy, no other details were provided.

Two weeks ago, Blaine’s Staredown, a 4-year-old gelding, died during training. The CHRB noted that 1.25 inches of rain fell that day at Golden Gate.
