DEL MAR, Calif. (AP) — A third horse has died during training at Del Mar, including the second trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert.

A track spokesman confirmed the death of Bowl of Soul, a 3-year-old filly trained by Baffert. She broke down Monday after an injury to her right hind fetlock and was euthanized. Jockey Joe Talamo, her regular rider, was aboard.

Bowl of Soul won her first race at Santa Anita on May 27 and was second in another on June 23.

The first two deaths at Del Mar occurred July 18, a day after the track north of San Diego opened its summer meet.
