Deceased Sunshine Coast Horse "Free Of Hendra"

Tuesday, 19th July 2011

Racing Queensland advised that a horse “recently transported from Ballarat to the Sunshine Coast which died shortly after arriving had tested negative to Hendra virus”. RQ director of integrity operations Jamie Orchard noted: “The horse exhibited respiratory symptoms during the trip north & samples were taken to exclude the possibility of Hendra virus during an overnight stop. Subsequent analysis proved negative to the virus. While the horse in this case was not suffering from Hendra virus, it serves as another reminder to industry participants to remain vigilant for signs of Hendra virus & to immediately report any possible cases to Biosecurity Queensland.”
