The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has announced that racing will not resume until next Wednesday at the earliest amid the equine flu outbreak. "This action was taken to mitigate the impact of any of the runners which competed at these fixtures being found to be infected by the virus".
In a statement, the BHA said: "This precautionary approach is meant to ensure we put the health of the horse population and control of the virus first, and avoid any unnecessary risk that might come from returning to racing too quickly".
"When new horses arrive at our yard we, as much as possible, try to keep them separate", McCain said in a statement. "This will all form part of the picture that is built in order to assist the decisions that will be made on Monday".
