John Gosden's filly, who was owned by Princess Haya of Jordan, broke down badly in the Lowther Stakes on Thursday and was found to have suffered serious damage to her pelvis.
The daughter of New Approach had won both her previous starts, a maiden at Newmarket and in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot, but had to be put down on Friday.
Equine specialist Gary Witheford, who had assisted with Newfangled since she had been taken to the vets on Thursday night, tweeted: "Sad to report Newfangled was put down today as her pelvis wasn't going to heal sufficiently."
