Gulfstream Park officials have placed Barn 3 under quarantine after an unidentified horse tested positive for “Swamp Fever,” or equine infections anemia. As first reported by the Daily Racing Form, all other horses in the barn produced negative tests when inspected by veterinarians.

According to the Racing Form report, the quarantine could last at least two weeks. Officials at The Stronach Group said that all horses in Barn 3 are required to train during a special window in late morning until the quarantine is lifted. In order for the quarantine to be lifted, the remaining horses in the barn will be required to pass testing administered by the state's Department of Agriculture.
