Any horse arriving on the grounds of a licensed racetrack must be accompanied by an original certificate of veterinary inspection. The certificate must include the date of inspection and date of issuance, both of which must be dated no more than ten days prior to the arrival. The certificate of veterinary inspection must be completed by an accredited veterinarian and must contain complete equine infectious anemia (EIA) test results, including the date, laboratory, and accession number of the most recent negative EIA test. The certificate must also contain rectal temperature and product name and date of most recent vaccination with a Food and Drug Administration-approved modified live or killed vaccine specific for EHV-1. The certificate of veterinary inspection must be surrendered to stable gate personnel for immediate transmittal to the commission veterinarian. The certificate of veterinary inspection will remain valid for 30 days from the date of issue, with the date of issue counted as day one. Horses leaving the facility and returning during this 30-day period do not have to be accompanied by a new certificate of veterinary inspection. Horses leaving and returning after the 30-day period will need to be accompanied by a new original certificate of veterinary inspection. The certificate must include the date of inspection and date of issuance, both of which must be dated no more than ten days prior to arrival. The horse must also have a negative equine piroplasmosis test as prescribed in part 7876.0100, subpart 11, or 7876.0110, subpart 5.
The certificate of veterinary inspection for horses leaving and returning on an ongoing basis throughout the meet must be renewed within the first five days of each month.
If a horse arrives at a licensed racetrack without all documentation required under this part, the horse shall be denied entry to the grounds of the licensed racetrack or kept in an isolation area until the required documentation is submitted to the commission veterinarian.
