In its most recent Stewards Minutes, the California Horse Racing Board reports the deaths of two horses at the California State Fair in Sacramento:

9-year-old Hostile Waters while training on July 15.

5-year-old Italian Harmony in the 7th race on July 17: “Italian Harmony was eased and dismounted at the 1/8th pole after the horse suffered an injury to the left front leg. The horse’s leg was placed in a splint and the horse was vanned off in the ambulance. The injury later proved to be catastrophic and the horse was euthanized.”
