Fifty-nine horses have been quarantined because of a suspected contagious infection at central Indiana’s Hoosier Park race
Hoosier Park officials put the horses in quarantine Saturday after one thoroughbred within the stable
began exhibiting signs of streptococcus equi, or strangles. They say it is a contagious bacterial disease common in horses
that can be life-threatening.
All 59 horses will remain quarantined at the Anderson track until test results
Hoosier Park did not say whether the quarantine would cause changes in its racing schedule. Its
next live races are scheduled for Wednesday.
