The Arizona Department of Agriculture quarantined horses at Turf Paradise in Phoenix Thursday after an incident concerning a highly contagious virus. The quarantine requires all horses at the track to stay and for no horses to come onto the property for 21 days.
The quarantine follows three horses coming into the state from Dona Ana County, New Mexico, where five horses were diagnosed with equine herpes virus last week, the department said in a news release. The New Mexico Livestock Board issued a quarantine for several locations, but the horses at Turf Paradise left before the restrictions were in place.
