British racing to resume with extra biosecurity measures in place

09-2314O Hendersons Stable Visit

Over the weekend it was announced around 1,500 tests had returned negative - but on Sunday evening it emerged four vaccinated horses from Simon Crisford's Newmarket yard had tested positive.

Chief regulatory officer Brant Dunshea outlined the protocols for what the BHA has described as "risk-managed return" to racing.

Bookmakers have reported that revenues have taken a hit following the news that new cases of the Equine Influenza virus have been identified, resulting in an industry-wide halt on the sport. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time.

The yard is one of the 174 to be tested because runners from the stable competed at the fixture at Newcastle on 5 February, which had been identified as a potential risk fixture.

The British Horseracing Authority was yesterday deliberating on a resumption in the United Kingdom and tweeted late last night: 'This evening's veterinary committee meeting has been extensive in order to ensure that a thorough risk assessment has been carried out.

'There is no risk to humans and strict biosecurity measures are in place'. 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. Fortunately, owing to the tireless efforts of the Animal Health Trust, trainers and their local vets, and BHA staff, the vast majority of yards which had been placed on hold will be in a position to resume racing.

The BHA will then review the declarations to ensure none are entered which do not meet risk criteria.

That's why when Nintendo insider King Zell talked about what could be coming soon in a Direct on ResetEra , we paid attention. Ninty fans have been kept on the edge of their seats in 2019 waiting for a Nintendo Direct announcement.

Also relieved are the team at Plumpton, who can now go ahead with racing on Wednesday.

"It's great to be back racing, and we have a real treat for racegoers with a superb day of racing in prospect".

The ruling body quickly enforced a six-day shutdown of racing in Britain, but the IHRB confirmed racing would continue in Ireland - with all runners from Britain not be permitted to race until further notice.

The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) said it welcomed the BHA's plan to resume racing.

"Security measures will include all horses being required to submit a health declaration, that the horse has shown no symptoms of equine flu in the last 14 days", he said.

Newmarket-based trainer and veterinary surgeon James Tate admits the discovery of four cases of equine influenza in the town is a significant blow to the chances of racing resuming later this week.

"Our advice remains that you must not take your horse to an event or competition if horses at your yard are unwell".
