DEL MAR (CBS 8) – There was tragedy at the Del Mar Racetrack less than a week before Opening Day.

A horse had to be euthanized Friday morning, after breaking down during a workout on the main track.

A track spokesperson tells a local news source the horse, named "Nijinsky's Leap", suffered a shoulder injury while training on the Polytrack surface.

Last year, five horses were put down after suffering injuries on the track.
