More EI cases found in the UK

09-2314O Hendersons Stable Visit

Racing in Britain had been canceled for the past six days as a result of an equine influenza outbreak.

The sport was rocked last Wednesday after it emerged three horses - which subsequently rose to six - were found to have the highly-infectious disease at Donald McCain's stable in Cheshire, England.

The BHA's statement confirmed United Kingdom racing would resume with scheduled jump fixtures on Wednesday at both the Scottish course of Musselburgh and the Plumpton track near Brighton in southern England, alongside all-weather racing at Kempton, southwest of London, and Southwell in the English Midlands.

While the BHA's regulatory officer Brant Dunshea admitted there were some risks associated with returning to racing, those risks had been assessed and deemed acceptable as long as biosecurity measures are employed.

"What we are comfortably satisfied with is that we have got sufficient measures in place to understand what has happened with the disease and how to contain and control it". The BHA veterinary committee believe that the swift controls on movement that were put in place have clearly helped to restrict the spread of this virus.

8 races in all will thrill and beguile on a day that will be steeped in history as another horse's name is added to the prestigious Kingwell Trophy, and racing celebrates the return of one of the country's most popular sports.

The BHA's statement Monday evening revealed that individual trainers' yards will be categorized according to the level of risk they have been exposed to, and the ability of runners to return to racing from those yards will depend on the risk categories the yards are placed in.

However, the tempo of their play dropped significantly following the restart and they were deservedly punished. They also carried him through the section as they celebrated their gripping 2-0 win in the first-leg game.

"We are finalising overnight which category individual trainers will now be placed in".

Media reports have estimated that the overall costs to racing will be in the region between £150m to £200m, with racing fixtures such as the Super Saturday at Newbury expected to cost bookmakers up to £2m a day.

Trainers planning to compete on Wednesday were advised by the BHA to declare at 10am on Tuesday.

The BHA were under growing pressure to re-start racing on Wednesday as their veterinary committee met on Monday night to discuss the equine influenza crisis. Obviously, by definition, they will only be coming from yards which aren't under restriction from the BHA.

"The critical thing is they have to have had the correct vaccination within the eight weeks preceding the run".

Crisford confirmed Sajanjl, who ran at Newcastle last week, has tested negative. The horse in question was fully vaccinated, as are all the horses that are stabled on our site.

At the moment the affected horses are all contained within Mr Crisford's yard.
