Mike Pegram's Icecoldbeeratreds, winner of the Del Mar Futurity (gr. II) and second in the Champagne Stakes (gr. I), was euthanized Wednesday after suffering a broken shoulder while galloping at Santa Anita.

"He was coming back off a layoff and just took one of those bad steps galloping on the training track and shattered his shoulder," trainer Bob Baffert said. "The vets say horses coming back off a long layoff are prone to cracked shoulders. It's really sad."

Icecoldbeeratreds was bred by Pegram in California. A son of In Excess, out of Guilded Times, by Crafty Prospector, Icecoldbeeratreds won three of his five starts last year, with one second and earnings of $353,800. He also captured the Graduation Stakes at Del Mar. He was training for the California Cup when surgery to remove a knee chip forced him to the sidelines in late October.

Pegram's colt was named champion California-bred 2-year-old male of 2002 by the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association. His name comes from Red Tracton's bar and restaurant located across the street from the Del Mar racetrack.
