Streets, a 2-year-old thoroughbred colt, died Monday at a training session at Golden Gate Fields, the California Horse Racing Board said Monday.

Streets' death is the fourth in August at Golden Gate Fields, according to the state racing board. Snow Pack died at the Berkeley track on Aug. 2; Galaxy Master died Aug. 13, and My Sweet Lou died Aug. 23. On all four of those days, track conditions were listed as "fast" and the weather was "clear."

Streets is the 20th fatality at Golden Gate Fields in 2020, the racing board said, and the 79th known race horse death in California in 2020.
