The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture released the following update about the EHV-1 outbreak at Remington Park on Dec. 19. One barn remains under quarantine there after a horse tested positive for EHV-1 in mid-November.
As many as 100 horses were thought to have been exposed, and the original quarantine included two barns. The first barn has since been released.
All horses in the quarantine barn tested negative on nasal swab and buffy coat. The race meet at Remington Park has concluded; officials will be utilizing additional empty barns to better separate and isolate the trainers in the quarantine barn. Currently there are 13 exposed horses in the Isolation Barn. Biosecurity measures and twice daily temperature monitoring is in place. ODAFF personnel are on-site and continue to monitor the situation.
