A quarantine at Charles Town Races & Slots in West Virginia was lifted March 13 after officials determined a horse stabled there was not suffering from equine herpesvirus.

Richard Moore, Charles Town general manager for racing, said a blood test on the 4-year-old filly was negative for the virus.

Moore said the track's regular training schedule would resume March 13, followed by live racing March 14.
