Can anyone report first hand as to how many horses are actually shipping out today? Since the options are so limited I am interested to see how many horseman actually ship there horses out of beautiful Stickney. All it would be nice if someone could provide any information as to farms and or other tracks that are accepting horses from Hawthorne.

Only if you can find a farm that will accept them that you trust!

Well, anyone who thinks as you do, that the call to end the quarantine this soon was "a very premature, irresponsible decision", wouldn't be leaving anyhow, because to take your own horses out of there truly not believing it is safe, and possibly infect other horses elsewhere, would be totally "irresponsible" ... right?

Beobob,
They made NO repairs to the track.  Period.
Honest and balanced Terry,
I wouldn't personally chance spreading this virus off of the track, so our horses will remain. 
I cannot make decisions for others.  It's what separates the leaders from the followers.  And thanks for bringing that point up.  Smiley
