Kentucky agriculture officials expect an economic boost from renewed horse trading. It's been two years since the last American horses where shipped to China.
Kentucky Thoroughbred Association Director Chauncey Morris says trade stopped because of China’s concern over equine infectious anemia. He said Chinese officials have now been convinced exported horses are protected from the disease. He says Chinese veterinarians conducted a health audit on Kentucky horses last spring. Morris says the trade accord means increased opportunities for Kentucky race horses.
