Two fires; one at San Luis training center and another in the Bonsall (sp?) area. :shock:

ETA: Being called the Lilac Fire; horses that have to be evacuated can go to Del Mar.

I'm disappointed that none of the racing news sites has a mention of this. :(

TVG's Scot just passed on the word that it is "a serious situation" at the SLR Training Center and that they are in great need of horse trailers. That anyone who lives down there and has a trailer, help is needed. :(

Lots of other horse farms in the area. Ocean Breeze Ranch, former Vessels Stallions, is right in the burn area, and humans have been burned at the ranch. Square Eddie resides there -- not sure how many other horses are there. Very concerned for them.

Includes the video that Todd mentioned of horses running loose on what looks like part of the track?

Cliff Sise said barns were on fire -- all they could do was turn the horses loose in the paddocks.

Sise: “There are horses running loose down here. People have lost horses. Barns have burned down. It just happened so fast. I’m burned.”

Not racehorses, but 30 horses were killed at a boarding stable near Los Angeles/Ventura area. Was in the L.A. Times this morning. I have friends in Ventura and near Bonsall and praying for them and everyone/all the animals in danger.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Sounds like the worst is happening at San Luis Rey Downs, reports saying 75% of the barns are gone and many many horses have perished.
Don't know how I'm gonna sleep tonight with this image on my mind.
