Fires in San Diego County killed dozens of horses and put at least one trainer in hospital with serious injuries at San Luis Rey Downs, according to multiple reports.

An estimated 25 horses died, but those numbers could be as high as 30, according to a Los Angeles Times report.

The Times also reports that trainer Martine Bellocq suffered second and third degree burns in more than 50% of her body and was taken by helicopter to UC San Diego Medical Center, where she was admitted to a medically induced coma.

Bellocq was wounded trying to rescue his six horses. Three of them died and three are missing, according to the report.

"There was so much smoke that it was hard to see," coach Dan Durham told KFMB in San Diego. "Some of the horses were released to be safe, they were scattered"

This is heartbreaking.

San Luis Rey Downs is a training site in Bonsall – in the northeastern San Diego County, where the horses that run in Del Mar, Santa Anita Park and Los Alamitos are stabled.

Los Alamitos canceled all races on Friday. Del Mar, located approximately 40 miles from San Luis Rey Downs, is housing dozens of displaced horses and is looking for donations of food and supplies.
