Report of case of Equine Herpes at Sports Creek in Michigan

The Ontario Racing Commission (ORC) has been made aware of a case of Equine Herpes Virus (EHV-1) in a horse that raced at Sports Creek Raceway on December 19th.

Due to the report of this confirmed case, ORC Veterinarian Supervisor Dr. Bruce Duncan advises that Ontario racetracks need to be cautious. “The racing industry is very mobile. While it is up to the discretion of the track, I strongly recommend that race secretaries not accept entries from horses that have raced at this track in the past 30 days.”
