Golden Gate Fields will close at end of 2023.

A horse named I'll Do it For You died after an injury at the Sonoma County racetrack, according to a government site that tracks equine fatalities. 

The horse lived at Golden Gate Fields.

The Stronach Group, which owns Golden Gate Fields, said they would discontinue horse racing at the end of the year. Company officials said they are also reviewing the horse's cause of death. 

Stronach officials said they would double down on their racing activities in Southern California. 

The closure leaves Northern California without a major racetrack.
