(CNN) – Two racehorses died Saturday at Pimlico Race Course, site of the Preakness Stakes to be held later in the day. 

Two racehorses died Saturday at Pimlico Race Course, site of the Preakness Stakes to be held later in the day.

Homeboykris collapsed after the first race of the day while walking back to his barn. The horse, a 9-year-old gelding, won the race at the Maryland track in Baltimore.

Trainer Francis Campitelli was in the stands when his horse went down.

He told The Baltimore Sun, “The boy that takes care of him said they had gone probably 100 yards, and he got wobbly and fell over and he pretty much was dead when he hit the ground.”
