Due to the unfortunate recent EHV-1 outbreak, Hoosier Park Racing & Casino in Anderson, Indiana, implemented an updated policy, which supersedes any previous policies regarding EHV-1, effective immediately.
All horses must have a current negative Coggins test (within 1 year) and a current EHV (rhino) vaccination (within 6 months) on file in the racing office and must be dated and signed by the veterinarian.
In addition, ALL horses originating from out of state must present a valid Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (Health Certificate) dated within 72 hours of entry with the horse’s temperature recorded on the certificate. Documents must be presented at the stable gate upon arrival or horses will not be permitted to enter the stable area.
