Dr. Adam Chambers, ORC Manager of Veterinary Services, is advising that there have been confirmed reports of EHV-1 in two standardbreds in Ontario.
The full statement, issued late Friday by the Ontario Racing Commission, appears below.
Due to the infectious nature of this disease it is important that decisive measures be taken to protect our equine athletes. Therefore, no horses that are or were stabled at the Campbellville Training Centre from April 29, 2013 be allowed to race in Ontario until further notice.
The ORC is closely monitoring the situation and any further developments will be reported.
