Dr. Anthony Verderosa, Chief Examining Veterinarian for the New York Racing Association (NYRA), conveyed to the Kentucky State Veterinarian by telephone earlier this afternoon (Dec. 31, 2005) that effective immediately, all horses shipping onto NYRA properties from Kentucky will be required to be accompanied with a 48 hour Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI), said Rusty Ford of the Kentucky State Veterinarian’s office.


Horses were previously allowed entry onto NYRA properties with a five-day CVI.


In addition to the 48 hour CVI requirement, Dr. Verderosa is requiring that individuals shipping to NYRA properties from Turfway Park call for entry approval.  Dr. Verderosa can be reached on 516/351-5314 with the call being made prior to the animal leaving Turfway.


These requirements will remain in effect until further notice is received from Dr. Verdeosa
