Some of the most valuable educational experiences occur outside the traditional campus classrooms for University of Kentucky equine science and management undergraduate students. They happen in the barns and businesses that make up the equine industry and are taught by industry stalwarts like Matt Koch, co-owner of Shawhan Place in Paris.

The University of Kentucky Gluck Equine Research Center has developed a novel test to determine the likelihood of a long-term equine arteritis virus carrier state in stallions.

Gluck Center faculty members Professor Udeni Balasuriya, Professor Ernie Bailey and Peter Timoney, Frederick Van Lennep Chair in Equine Veterinary Science, developed the test to determine the genetic basis of a specific haplotype, a group of genes inherited from one parent. Their work was funded by a U. S. Department of Agriculture-Agriculture and Food Research Initiative grant.
