Hello! My name is Dr. Danielle Smarsh, and I am an Equine Extension Specialist at Penn State University. I am reaching out to see if you can help out myself and my graduate student, Erin. We are conducting a survey of horses in Pennsylvania and their feeding and exercise management practices. The survey also looks at the prevalence of gastrointestinal diseases in horses and how these diseases are commonly managed. We have been running this survey since March, and we are hoping to get responses from across all horse disciplines in PA. So far, we have very little data for race horses
The parx bookkeeper has informed the PTHA that they will now accept cash for claiming horses. Parx is scheduled to resume claiming races on July 6, 2020. You must schedule an appointment by calling 267-223-3315 to go up the second floor. Fans will be allowed frontside with Social Distancing precautions.
