The Meadows Racetrack in Washington, Pa. updated the status of live racing there announcing that it will now be suspended through and including Feb. 6, 2018 according to The Meadows vice president and general manager Allie Evangelista.

During the suspension of live racing, The Meadows Racetrack and Race Book will remain open for simulcasting along with their off-track betting facility at Hamar.

The suspension of live racing at The Meadows will have no impact on operations inside The Meadows Casino, its food and beverage outlets or its bowling facility.

Last Wednesday (Jan. 24), the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture was notified that a Standardbred horse at The Meadows had showed clinical signs consistent with Equine Herpes Virus Myeloencephalopathy and tested positive for EHV-1. At that time, two barns were placed under quarantine and all horses were restricted from entering or leaving the track.

For further information, please contact the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture's media contact, Bonnie McCann, at (717) 783-0133. (USTA)
