Two horses had the same owner, Ken Ramsey, whose farm manager, Mark Patridge, confirmed the deaths to the outlet. They were also both jockeyed by Luis Saez.

Parents Pride collapsed and died following its race Saturday, while Chasing Artie died after its race Tuesday. No cause of death for the two horses has been determined, although the deaths do not appear to be injury-related. Bloodwork and labs came back normal, so necropsies will be done to determine how the horses died.
