Aust Owners Support On-Going EI Vaccination
State delegates to the Australian Thoroughbred Racehorse Owners Council (representative 100,000 owners throughout Australia) voted unanimously "in favour of continued vaccination of the thoroughbred population against equine influenza". Out-going chairman Wayne Milner commented: "Although this disease appears to be eradicated, ATROC believes it is commercially prudent to continue to vaccinate the thoroughbred population against this seriously debilitating infection. Continuation of the vaccine will ensure the racing & breeding population will remain healthy & not allow EI to once again bring the racing & breeding industry to its knees."
