CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) — Authorities say a woman has died after she was kicked in the chest by a horse at Will Rogers Downs racetrack near Claremore.

KOTV-TV reports that 42-year-old Jennifer Peterson of Beggs died Tuesday night at a Claremore hospital where she was taken.

The station reports that Peterson was helping load the horse into a trailer when she was kicked about 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Officials with the Rogers County Sheriff's Department did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

The track is part of a casino complex operated by Cherokee Nation Businesses, the Cherokee Nation’s business arm.
