INDIANTOWN, Fla. (AP) A top training facility for thoroughbreds in Florida is under quarantine for three weeks after a horse tested positive for a dangerous strain of equine herpes.

Florida's Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services says a horse at Payson Park Thoroughbred Training Facility tested positive on Monday for equine herpes virus-1.

The facility will quarantine about 500 thoroughbreds at the facility for three weeks as a precaution.

The virus can cause reproduction problems in infected horses, and can be spread through contact with other thoroughbreds during training.

Payson Park is a famous training facility in South Florida for racehorses and includes in its alumni Cigar, Drosselmeyer, Royal Delta and VooDoo Dancer.
