Blackwood Training Center Released From EHV Restrictions

From E.S. Rusty Ford, equine operations consultant at the office of the state veterinarian, Kentucky Department of Agriculture

Results of testing on the samples (nasal swabs and whole blood EDTA) collected from each horse stabled in Barn A at Blackwood Training Center on Friday, April 9, have been reported negative for detection of EHV1 DNA by PCR testing.  In addition to the testing that has been completed, the horses have been monitored daily and our findings support that it has been greater than 14 days since any horse in Barn A was last potentially exposed to a clinical case.

Meeting the criteria above provided us the confidence needed to release the group of horses in Barn A from restriction on Monday, April 12, and allow them to resume their normal training and racing activities.
