    Default Filly at Santa Anita dies from EHV-1

    This is getting scary. It's now spread across the country and many different disciplines. I wonder how it will effect Derby prep?

    Daily Racing Form: 3/7/13, "Filly euthanized after contracting equine herpesvirus"

    The filly, My Sugar Sugar, was trained by Eddie Truman.

    The filly’s death is not expected to result in a quarantine of the Santa Anita barn area, according to Dr. Rick Arthur, the racing board’s equine medical director. He said in an interview that horses euthanized from the effects of equine herpes in California are “not infrequent.”

    The racing board’s statement said that no other cases of EHV-1 had been detected at Santa Anita.
    Truman, 66, said that he was stunned by the loss of My Sugar Sugar.

    “We’re taking every precaution and cleaning everything and sanitizing everything,” Truman said. “I’ve never had a horse with it in my life. I was in shock.”

    Truman said that My Sugar Sugar spiked a temperature last weekend that led to her receiving medical treatment. At the time, Truman said, he was not alarmed. “It’s normal with 2-year-olds coming in (to the barn area), but she went downhill fast on Tuesday,” he said.

    My Sugar Sugar’s conditioned worsened over a six-hour period on Tuesday. During that time, the California Department of Agriculture was notified of a suspected case of EHV-1, the racing board said.
    Poor gal - condolences to her connections. I doubt that any impact will be had upon the Derby preps of which there is one at SA tomorrow.
