Belmont Barn 15 Quarantine to End Saturday

Belmont Park | Coglianese

The quarantine of Barn 15 at Belmont Park will expire next Saturday at 3 p.m. The barn had been placed in quarantine Feb. 3 when an unraced filly trained by Danny Gargan presented acute neurological symptoms and was subsequently euthanized. Cornell University then returned a positive test for EHV Feb. 4.

An additional horse in Barn 15 developed a fever Feb. 5, which extended the quarantine through Feb. 26. That horse tested negative for EHV Feb. 6. Upon review of the circumstances, the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets will allow the quarantine to expire 21 days from the positive case of EHV.

The 34 horses stabled in Barn 15, which is home to stalls for Gargan, Jim Ryerson and Gustavo Rodriguez, are being monitored daily for fever and other signs of illness. Should all horses remain asymptomatic, horses stabled in Barn 15 will be permitted to enter races and train among the general population following a barn inspection and examination of horses to be performed by New York Racing Association and NYSAM Saturday.
