Star Over the Bay, the winner of four lucrative stakes in the United States over the last year, was euthanized Sunday after suffering a sesamoid injury in the $1.8 million Singapore Airlines International Cup at Kranji Racecourse in Singapore.

The race, run over about 1 1/4 miles on turf, was won by Mummify, an Australian shipper.

Star Over the Bay was near the front at the half-mile pole when he was injured.

"The vets put him down to stop him suffering," trainer Mike Mitchell told the track's press officials.

Jockey Tyler Baze was not injured, according to his agent, Ivan Puhich.

, a 7-year-old gelding, won 10 of 43 starts and $917,353. He was claimed for $80,000 in May 2004 by G Racing, Carl Van Burger and Landon Vaughn. Last summer and fall, he won three major turf stakes: the Grade 2 Sunset Handicap at Hollywood Park, the Grade 2 Del Mar Handicap, and the Grade 1 Clement Hirsch Championship at Santa Anita.

Last October, Star Over the Bay finished last in the Breeders' Cup Turf at Lone Star Park after leading to the final turn.

Earlier this year, Star Over the Bay won the Sunshine Millions Turf at Santa Anita.

Mummify, a multiple stakes winner in Australia, finished three-quarters of a length in front of Phoenix Reach, who won the $2 million Sheema Classic in Dubai in March.
