Horse Racing Shuts Down in UK Amidst Influenza Outbreak

Due to an equine influenza outbreak, any and all horse racing activity in the UK is temporarily suspended.


WHY BE AN AFFILIATE WHEN YOU CAN GET 100%?  JUST PAY $5 PER PLAYER

The decision was made after the Animal Health Trust has found three confirmed cases of the equine influenza on horses, despite being vaccinated.  These horses were featured in a race last Wednesday, at the Ayr and Ludlow courses.

The equine influenza can take up to three days before being asymptomatic, so the BHA wants to take the proper precautions to not expose healthy horses to the sick ones.  There is also concern because this strain of influenza is resistant to the vaccine.

Horse racing is extremely popular in the United Kingdom.

For now, the BHA is setting the next possible date to resume until February 13, but this is still temporary.  That is still weeks ahead of the next major horse racing event in the United Kingdom, the Champion Hurdle (12 March).
