Equine herpes detected at Churchill Downs

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A barn in the stable area at Churchill
Downs has been quarantined after a horse tested positive for equine
Churchill Downs spokesman John Asher says a 3-year-old
thoroughbred in Barn 47, which houses horses trained by David
Carroll and Al Stall Jr., tested positive for the virus after
displaying symptoms on Thursday. The horse trained by Carroll was
transported to an equine hospital Lexington for observation.
The quarantine order affects 19 horses in Carroll's section of
the barn, a total that includes a stable pony, and 16 horses under
Stall's care.
Asher says the quarantine shouldn't affect Churchill Downs'
21-day fall meet, which starts Sunday.
