LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Officials at Keeneland have confirmed the death of a racehorse.

A spokesperson for the track says a state vet confirmed that Amandine was euthanized.

Marty McGee of the Daily Racing Form also tweeted about the horse's death saying, "Per @keenelandracing stewards, Amandine suffered injuries during R8 on the turf course here yesterday that necessitated her euthanization. Extremely unfortunate. Stakes-winning British-bred 4yo filly was G1-placed."

Earlier this month, filly Cathedral Reader was also euthanized at the track following a race. It's the third equine death at Keeneland since racing began on April 4th. There were five total deaths in all of 2018.
