EHV-1: Lone Star Park Restricts Shippers From Fonner, Parx

It is Lone Star Park’s policy that horses that have been stabled at Fonner Park in Nebraska or Parx Racing in Pennsylvania will not be allowed to participate at Lone Star Park until further notice.

Furthermore, we also continue to require that all horses admitted to the Lone Star Park stable area have a current (within 90 days) FDA approved EHV-1 vaccine or EHV-1 booster.

Vaccine information must be noted on the health certificate for admittance to Lone Star Park.

While we understand this is an inconvenience for horsemen, we are simply doing all we can as an industry to prevent the spread of the highly contagious EHV-1 virus, while doing what we believe to be the best management practices for such prevention.

Any and all horsemen shipping horses to Lone Star Park are strongly urged to contact the Lone Star Park racing office for further information.
