New Vaccination Rule Angers Trainers

The ban has been lifted on racing in the UK and trainers are trying to make declarations for there horses but are struggling after a new vaccination rule has been implemented by the BHA.

They are facing an uncertain time due to the governing body categorising different horses under different risk sections and a rule introduced overnight stating that horses must have been vaccinated within the previous six months to be able to race.

(Credit Racing Post) Chief executive Nick Rust explained at a press conference in London on Tuesday morning that stables will be categorised as "primary risk, secondary risk and low risk", and said it was to early to label any stable as no risk.

This has caused a considerable amount of uproar on Tuesday with trainers taking to social media to voice there opinions on the matter.

Olly Murphy was one of the trainers that took to Twitter to voice is angry and understandable opinion on the new ruling that will setback many trainers preparations with there horses for up coming big races and mainly the Cheltenham Festival.

Murphy then gave an update of he horses that would be running from his yards over the next few weeks that had a tone of anger but he has handled it very well.

The smaller yards in racing will be effected more by this obviously having a fewer number of runners and most likely to only vaccinate once a year compared that off the bigger stables that might do it frequently throughout the year due to more resources.

(Credit Racing Post) Chief regulatory officer Brant Dunshea, also speaking at the press conference, said: "I think it will be a limited number of stables who aren't allowed to make declarations this morning.

"We collected samples from in the region of 160 or 170 yards, and we began the process last night of categorising the yards. I can't be certain how many right now.

"Trainers will be required to submit a health declaration, and that documentation needs to be with BHA staff at racecourses before a horse can be unloaded at the racecourse."

"All horses need to have been vaccinated within six months of raceday, because this increases levels of immunity.

"The process is unfolding. We have a team going through risk assessment right now, based on the protocols. It's going to be a logistical challenge, but we'll get there. We are determined to get the show back on the road.

"The Animal Health Trust has worked tirelessly and done more for our industry in the last six days than they would normally deal with in a year. It's an incredible credit to them to do what they have done.

“The number of yards restricted will be fluid. It will be changing over the next 24 hours and it will be receding, hopefully, unless we find more cases. The Animal Health Trust is continually sending data to us."

Another trainer that has took to twitter to voice his strong opinions is Brendan Powell who looked to have a similar problem to Olly Murphy.

He explained how his small and select few amount of runners that he could be taking to the Cheltenham Festival would be effected by this, which looks highly unfair.

Another rule that was added by the BHA late last night was any runners from overseas will need to provide evidence of a negative test within the last 72 hours, and there will be precautions taken to check on this with surveillance of horses within the racecourse.

(Credit Racing Post) Rust explained: "This is so we can check that horses who shouldn't be declared under the restrictions we are putting in place are not appearing on racecards, not appearing in the papers, and not turning up at the racecourse."

Rust admitted: "It's possible some stables will not be able to enter because of the logistical situation. There are certain cases where the swabbings weren't carried out correctly and have been sent back and so testing will need to be carried out again, but the Animal Health Trust hasn't stopped and over the next few days we are going to continue with these tests and try to get as many yards cleared as possible.

"Horses will not be restricted unless there is good reason to restrict them."Rust said that it was his belief that the six-month rule would not be a major issue in most jumping yards.

But he added: "Some horses will face some obstacles with regard to vaccinations over the next few weeks and we ask for the patience of the public and the connections of these horses for the wider good of racing so that we can go ahead without significant disruption."

Nicky Henderson is another trainer that is effected by the situation, which just shows that even the biggest yards in Britain are having to put up with this new rule an the British Champion Trainer took to Twitter to alert his fans of horses who will be missing from the racecourse because of this new vaccine rule,
