Herpes positive prompts Oaklawn to ban horses from New Mexico, Arizona


Oaklawn Park announced Thursday it has banned horses from Arizona and New Mexico due to equine herpesvirus positives at Sunland Park and a suspected positive at Turf Paradise. The restriction includes horses who have been in Arizona or New Mexico since Jan. 1.

The horses are banned from the grounds immediately and until further notice, according to Oaklawn director of racing David Longinotti.

In addition, connections from Arizona and New Mexico, including jockeys, trainers and grooms, will not be allowed on the grounds until they meet with the stewards, according to a release issued by Oaklawn.

“We are being overly cautious because our main concern is for the safety of the horses currently stabled on our grounds,” Longinotti said.

Sunland Park in New Mexico suspended live racing earlier this month because of five positives for the equine herpesvirus. The earliest the track could resume racing is Feb. 9. The strain EHV-1 was first confirmed in a 5-year-old Thoroughbred mare who was later euthanized, according to a release from Sunland.

Oaklawn races through April 16.

I hope this will be of immerse benefit to someone living or just diagnosed
of HIV. I was diagnosed of HIV 3 years ago, i came across a blog last month
when I was browsing on my computer and i saw lot of testimonies and post
from people making reference to a traditional doctor on how he used his
natural herbal medicine called TATAHWE which they said can FLUSH the blood
system from any virus or disease. Some testimonies was centered on;
*HIV (with a very low cd4 count)
I decided to give it a trial, though i never believed in herbal medicine
but i was in a way convinced with the sort of amazing testimonies i saw
online i decided to contact him, with the response he gave, He promised to
prepare and send the "TATAHWE" Medicine to me. It was not up to a week
after i placed an order, I got the medicine and he instructed me to drink
the medicine for two weeks ( only evenings before bed) after which, I
should go back to the hospital for a Re-Test. I followed his instructions
and i discovered that my urine became yellowish for good two weeks so
immediately i finished the medicine i went for the test the following week,
it was very surprising i tested negative. I can't thank dr sani enough, so
I decided to promote him because he cured me from my disease, there's no
disease he can't cure with his medicine. Please also spread the good news
to others so that those with same illness can be cured.email him at
