On July 10, the race track was briefly placed on probation by the CHRB after at least 20 horses died at the track in 2020 after suffering racing or training injuries, and another 10 had succumbed to gastrointestinal and other types of illnesses.
The death of Nomadess marks the fourth horse death at Los Alamitos since the CHRB granted the track a one-year license to continue conducting quarter horse racing in January.
The reversal from a six-month license came after two horses died while training at the track over the previous week.
The track will reopen to fans for live nighttime racing starting on April 2.MORE NEWS: LA Animal Services Offering Reduced And Waived Fees For Pit Bulls, Cats
