Spring 2013 requirements for entry of horses into stable areas
After consulting with the Kentucky State Veterinary Office, the following are required for any horse to gain entrance onto Keeneland’s grounds.
All horses, including lead ponies, seeking entrance into our stable area(s) shall be accompanied by:
(1) a current negative Coggins Test
(2) a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI), which has been signed and dated within seventy-two (72) hours prior to arrival by a licensed veterinarian.
(3) record of vaccination against Equine Herpes Virus Type 1 (EHV-1) by a licensed veterinarian a minimum of fourteen (14) days, and no more than one hundred twenty (120) days of entry into our stable area(s). Once a horse receives the initial EHV-1 vaccination it only needs to be re-vaccinated every one hundred twenty (120) days, hence if you vaccinated your horse last January then vaccinate him/her again 120 days later. The minimum fourteen (14) day vaccine requirement applies to horses that had NOT been vaccinated for EHV-1 within the past one hundred twenty (120) days. The Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) shall indicate the date of the vaccination, the specific vaccine product, vaccine lot number, and vaccine expiration date, used to vaccinate each horse.
PLEASE PROVIDE ALL REQUIRED DOCUMENTS FOR ANY HORSE(S), INCLUDING LEAD PONIES, STABLED ON KEENELAND GROUNDS TO THE STABLE OFFICE IMMEDIATELY UPON YOUR ARRIVAL. THE STABLE OFFICE CAN BE REACHED AT 859-288-4240, 859-509-2245 OR 859-699-4517. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION.
Equine Herpes and Strangles are contagious equine diseases, which continue to be a concern in the United Sates. These requirements have been taken to safeguard all horse(s). Horsemen are asked to maintain temperature charts on all of their horses, and to report any horse whose rectal temperature exceeds 102º F to their veterinarian and Rogers Beasley, Vice President of Racing immediately. Your cooperation is appreciated.
*Please note that these requirements are subject to change at any time.
