Test results have been returned for the two horses who spiked temperatures earlier this morning at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots in New Orleans, La.
The horse in Barn 14, trained by Tom Amoss, returned a negative result. The horse in the receiving barn, trained by Chris Davis, returned a positive result for the “wild strain.”
As a result, the quarantine timeline on Barn 14 remains unchanged, with a current end date of Jan. 13 at the discretion of the Louisiana Department of Agriculture. The receiving barn is now under quarantine until Jan. 16 at the discretion of the Louisiana Department of Agriculture.
