Easing Of COVID Travel Restrictions Expected To Help Thoroughbred Industry’s Rebound

The White House announced Monday plans to ease COVID-19 travel restrictions into the United States by foreign visitors from 33 countries, including the United Kingdom and European Union, starting in November. The move is expected to clear the way to make it easier for foreign nationals to attend important equine-related events in the United States like the Breeders’ Cup World Championships in California and the November breeding stock sales in Kentucky.

The new rules will require all foreign nationals from the impacted countries arriving in the United States to show proof of being fully vaccinated, according to the White House.

“This is very welcome news as Thoroughbred breeding and racing in the United States continues to rebound from the negative impacts of the coronavirus pandemic,” said NTRA President and Chief Executive Officer Alex Waldrop.
