Delta Reschedules Azalea and Pelican Stakes

Delta Downs has announced that a pair of $100,000 stakes races originally scheduled for this Friday and Saturday, the Azalea and Pelican S., will be rescheduled for Jan. 13 and 14, respectively, because of EHV-1 shipping restrictions that would have resulted in too many scratches.

The Delta Downs overnight for Jan. 12 included a notice that read, in part, “Assuming that no cases of EHV-1 are identified at Delta Downs, we plan to lift the quarantine and resume normal activities on Monday, Jan. 9. Starting on that date, Delta Downs will require a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) and proof of vaccination for the EHV-1, for any horse that enters our premises. This inspection must be conducted within 48 hours prior to the horse’s arrival. This requirement will remain in place until further notice.”
