Hawthorne outbreak confirmed as EHV

Officials have determined that the illness that has been affecting horses located in one barn at Hawthorne is the Equine Herpes Virus (EHV). The barn remains under quarantine, but racing will continued as scheduled.

The decision was made to quarantine the affected barn in order to combat the disease, which has manifested in the neurologic form in two horses. The quarantine is restricted to Barn A.

“We're treating the horses in there and monitoring the horses in Barn A, ” said Hawthorne Assistant General Manager Jim Miller. ” Horses can still ship in. It doesn't affect racing. Racing still continues.”
