CALGARY – The Calgary Stampede says a horse has died after last night’s chuckwagon races.
It says the animal suffered a serious internal medical condition during the race and needed veterinary care.
The 14-year-old gelding owned by Troy Dorchester died from that condition and a post-mortem exam is underway.
The Stampede did not specify what the condition is, but says there’s no indication it’s specific to chuckwagon racing.
It says the horse underwent a thorough veterinary examination beforehand.
The Stampede, a 10-day celebration of western culture, runs until Sunday.
