Promising race mare Miss Pandanus has drowned after taking fright while working at the beach near Somers south of Melbourne.

Trainer Mick Kent confirmed to RSN 927 that the mare, who was in pre-training, took fright, panicked and swam out to sea.

She became exhausted and was not able to make it back to land.

Kent said it was a tragic incident for the mare and her owners and Miss Pandanus had shown potential on the racetrack with two wins and two placings from her first four starts.

Racing Victoria has been notified of the incident.
