I think it would be good to know what horses have the disease.

Story from yesterday says a sixth horse tested positive, but no additional cases.

Hopefully the pony people are allowed back tomorrow!(tests were supposed to come back tonight) saw a couple get loose prerace today but one was not surprising considering it was a 2yo. sally bemo also a 2yo who won the third probaly woulda got loose prerace today if one of the stronger riders(seth) wasnt on her. think its pretty dangerous to continue on like this

Ponies can spread the virus by contact even if they are not themselves infected, so the test results wouldn't necessarily matter.  In Europe, nobody ever uses ponies and they seem to get by just fine.

In europe they dont run on the kinda meds our racehorses here do. Anybody who's handled horses on the racetrack knows that they are totally different to handle on raceday with the meds in em as opposed to just the average morning during training

Wow. How long do horses have to test negative before they will be accepted?

The standard vet advice is that an infected horse has to be symptom-free and test negative for 21 days before returning to the general population.  However, individual tracks and states are exercising their own judgement on whether and when the Hawthorne situation is sufficiently under control that it's safe to accept Hawthorne horses.  One vet recently told me that he thought that, assuming no new cases, other states/tracks might start allowing Hawthorne horses around mid-December, but I don't think it was really anything more than an educated guess.
