San Luis Rey Training Center in Bonsall

Terrified, the sleek speedsters stampeded through Bonsall's San Luis Rey Downs horse-training facility, whinnying, rolling their eyes and thundering through thick smoke as the Lilac Fire quickly consumed the barns where they had spent the morning serenely munching hay.

"I opened the pen and tried to get behind her and get her out, and she wouldn't get out", horse trainer Cliff Sise told San Diego's KFMB-TV.

A post on O'Neill's Facebook page indicated that O'Neill's assistant Leandro Mora was on site at San Luis Rey to assist with the evacuation process. "There have been casualties".

"Some of the lower barns-portable barns-caught on fire", Machowsky said, relaying a phone conversation he had with trainer Michele Dollase a half-hour earlier.

Keith Brackpool, the chairman of Santa Anita which owns San Luis Rey Downs, said stable personnel had no choice but to let horses loose to get them away from the barns. Keith Brackpool, chairman of West Coast operations for The Stronach Group at Santa Anita, noted that transportation between tracks was made hard because the fire around San Luis Rey necessitated significant road closures.

"Even though you shoo 'em out, they want to go back", Thrash said. "We turned a lot loose on the infield of the training track in hope".

San Luis Rey Downs was bolstered by $5 million worth of improvements in 2013.

According to a 2013 story in the Daily Racing Form, San Luis Rey Downs was built in the late 1960s to be a parimutuel racing facility by C. Arnholt Smith and John Alessio, who meant to "wrest the choice summer racing dates away from the track at the Del Mar Fairgrounds".

Various reports indicated that the fire crossed some of the main roads around the training center.
