With Fair Grounds still in the grips of the equine herpes virus, here’s the latest from the Stidham stable.
– Stidham’s main barn at Fair Grounds is expected to emerge from its quarantine on the 6th of February. No horses stabled there at the moment are eligible to compete.
– Six Stidham horses stabled at another barn at Fair Grounds are eligible to compete, while nine removed from the quarantined barn will be free to run should they test clear.
– All of the Stidham horses stabled at Evangeline Downs can ship in and run at Fair Grounds, prior to shipping back to Evangeline Downs.
Stidham would like to stress how everything is being done to ensure the health and safety of all the horses in his care.
