SUBJECT: Calculation of the 100 day EIPH list requirement
The Canadian Pari-Mutuei Agency (CPMA) has received an inquiry concerning the requirement for a horse to remain on a provincial Exercise-Induced Pulmonary Hemorrhage (EIPH) list for 100 days, when the horse moves from one EIPH list to a new province's EIPH list.
The Pari-Mutuel Betting Supervision Regulations (the Regulations) require provincial Commissions to maintain an upto -date list of horses that participate in their EIPH program . Any horse on a province's EIPH list is required to remain on t hat list for a period of at least 100 days.
Where the horse comes from another Canadian province, the 100 days may be counted from the date the horse was most recently added to the EIPH list, assuming the date can be confirmed by that originating provincial Commission (e.g., if 40 days have passed on the original list then the horse must remain on the new list for another 60 days). Where the exact start date on that EIPH list cannot be confirmed by the originating Commission, or, if the horse arrived from outside Canada, the start date is the first day the horse is added to the new province's EIPH list (e.g., day 1 of 100).
