In the communication sent 1/29/2010 describing our concern and position regarding the EHV1 diagnosis, quarantine and anticipated release of quarantine at Parx Racing, we stated the directive issued would remain in effect through the week ending Sunday, January 10.  Having had no additional cases reported, and with no known suspected cases being investigated, our position is unchanged tonight and the directive will expire as scheduled on Sunday evening; thus enabling tracks and training centers to consider allowing those horses originating from Parx that meet the established health requirements to enter the grounds and stabling area.
