    Default search for exact phrase

    I am wondering if there is a way to search an exact phrase.

    For instance, I am trying to search for a name of a horse that has 2 words in it - Don Crusador.

    Instead of bringing up everything specific to Don Crusador, I am getting a bazillion threads on Don or Crusador, or something that is not even remotely related to either.

    Is there a way to search for EXACT phrase and thus exclude everything else? Or is there a chance for this feature to be added in the near future?

    Google allows you to specify that your search results must come from a given website. For example, the query [ iraq site:nytimes.com ] will return pages about Iraq but only from nytimes.com.

    Example, search for "gaited horse"
    "gaited horse" site:chronofhorse.com/forum

    Your search request brought up 12 hits:
    "don crusader" site:chronofhorse.com/forum
