IT has been revealed that a horse died at the Bong Bong Picnic Races on Friday.

Palestrina, ridden by jockey Nyssa Burrells and trained by Sam Kavanagh, ran into the running rail during the Gallenen Maiden Plate over 1000 metres.

A report of the incident was compiled by South East Racing chief steward Jim Walsh.

According to available evidence, Palestrina “made contact” with the running rail and injured its right shoulder.

Palestrina sustained a severe laceration and, according to the report, the filly was “humanely euthanised”.

Walsh told the Southern Highland News that the death, in his view, was a “rare event” in horse racing in NSW.

“We take all manners available to reduce horse deaths in racing,” he said.

“It is an unfortunate part of racing.”

More than 6500 people attended the Bong Bong Picnic Races.

Despite the hot conditions, four track records for fastest times were broken at the event.

The main race, the Macarthur Square Fashions Bong Bong Cup, was won by New Zealand import Tradtri.

Ridden by jockey Billy Owen, Tradtri galloped to win from Damysus and Frankenbeans.

The other big winner on Friday was jockey Tim Phillips, who rode four winners.

Trainer Donna Grisedale had three winning horses.
