FAIR GROUNDS BACKSTRETCH UNDER QUARANTINE, Racing Continues

Fair Grounds continues racing but no horses will be permitted to ship in or out of the facility

Two more horses on the backstretch at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots spiked temperatures Jan. 2 and as a result the entirety of the Fair Grounds backstretch is under quarantine.

No horses will be permitted to ship in or ship out of Fair Grounds. Track o cials, in concert with the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and the United States Department of Agriculture, continue to monitor the situation and follow all protocols as directed by those two governing bodies.

Oaklawn Park, working in conjunction with the Arkansas State Racing Commission, is restricting horses from Louisiana. No horses that have been in Louisiana in the past 30 days will be permitted on the grounds until further notice.
