I didn't hear anything new.  Seemed like a pr event.   In a general sense, virtually all the horses at Hawthorne have at least been exposed.  Most will not break out with it.  But what will happen when they all go to their next stop?  Who really knows if the virus is really contained at that time?  Very concerning.

Thanks for the recap.

Were there any good questions from the ITHA or ITHA members?

Jim Miller gave a breakdown of testing, positives and negatives by barn. If current tests come back clean, many of the monitored horses will be released into the general population. Current protocols are being followed. Hygiene is important, and free supplies are available from several locations. All participants stressed that if you see anything not being followed, speak up. Talk to the vets, follow the hygiene procedures, and temperature check all horses.

There are other current outbreaks, in Minnesota, Utah, and England:
http://www.heraldextra.com/sanpete-county/news/equine-herpes-virus-confirmed-in-utah-horse/article_c0b834d1-8921-54c3-8b55-caf402244f79.html
http://www.thehorse.com/articles/30893/minnesota-ehv-1-two-horses-in-stable-condition
http://horsetalk.co.nz/2012/11/17/british-racing-stable-ehv1-outbreak/#.UKqX96P0_Uk

On the question of claimed horses, they said it is a non-issue because currently racing horses are healthy, they are vet-checked at least 3 times on race day, and there have been no claimed horses who have been sick.

There is no real timetable for when the quarantine will be lifted, basically everyone needs to be negative @ 21 days after any positives. Hawthorne and ITHA will continue with updates.

Most of the other questions were about the protocols or transporting sick/healthy horses.

Terry, the only "change" I heard was that the Ag Dept is willing to consider the possibility of allowing horses to be removed to facilities approved by the Dept on a case-by-case basis.  The reference was specifically addressed to out-of-State facilities, which would need the approval by their own State Ag Dept, as well.

Janine, that is a good recap.  The hygiene issues have been drilled on since the outbreak began, and awareness is there.  However, when moving trucks, trailers and tack also carry the virus, hygiene alone is insufficient to stop it.  In the England outbreak, they specifically found the virus on the tires of the lorries (trucks).  I read that article in the wee hours last week and will attempt to find it to post.

My feeling is that we still have not addressed the outbreak and I have considerable concern that this will continue to spread throughout the State and beyond.

Thanku for this informed post!

Truck tires!
Why are not the trucks moving in and out and back stretch autos disinfected or are they?
I cannot stress the importants these things need to be addressed or are they?

My concern about the claimed horses is the incubation period for the virus.  If a horse is exposed a day or two before a race and doesn't show illness for 14 days or so shouldn't a moratorium be put on claims and to prevent people from cramming horses to win cheaper races not allow any horse to run for less than he had in the last start or so..

Another excellent point!
