Update 2/10/17 at 2:35pm
Turfway Park – Results of testing from the population of horses in the quarantined barn have been reported, and with it having been greater than 14 days since the population was last exposed, the quarantine is released and horses in the barn are under no further restrictions.
With this barn now released, there are no racing or training facilities in KY under quarantine for EHV1.
Previously positive horses do remain under regulatory monitoring and remain quarantined in secured isolated areas.
We appreciate the commitment, and cooperation of KY’s horsemen, track managers, racing officials, veterinarians and all others who worked to resolve these events.
Racing at Turfway continues uninterrupted. Trainers shipping in to race or train will continue to be assigned stabling in the receiving barns unless the individual trainer has stalls permanently assigned on the backside. All horses entering the stabling area are required to present valid certificates (EIA and CVI) qualifying the horse’s entry onto the backside. The CVI must include statements that demonstrate a valid vaccination history.
Horses with history of having been at Fair Grounds in LA (or other LA facility where EHV has been diagnosed): We continue to disallow these horses entry onto a KY race track or their associated training facilities without meeting defined requirements. These requirements can be viewed on our web page at www.kyagr.com/statevet, following the link to the EHV updates and protocols
