Barn 14 at Turfway Park, in Florence, Kentucky, has been released from a quarantine put in place after a horse residing there tested positive for equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1).

“Results of testing from the population of horses in the quarantined barn at Turfway Park have been reported negative,” E.S. Rusty Ford, equine operations consultant for the State Veterinarian’s Office, said in a March 1 statement. “In addition to the testing that has been completed, it has been greater than 14 days since the population was last exposed to a clinical case. Horses in the barn are under no further restrictions and may resume to training with the general population. With the release of this barn, there are no barns under restriction or quarantine at Turfway Park Race Course.”

He added that horses that had previously tested positive for EHV-1 remain under regulatory monitoring and are quarantined off-site.

Racing at Turfway continues uninterrupted
