    Default I Really Dislike the CoTH Search Function

    Am I missing something? I find the Search option to be very lame, for the specific reason that I can't get it to search for a phrase. For example, if I want to search for mentions of the Thoroughbred Broad Brush, I have tried searching for his name as "Broad Brush" but I still get search results for Broad and others for Brush. Useless.

    Is there some other way I should be using this search function for multi-word phrases?

    You can type this into Google followed by your search terms (X, Y, Z for example) and it works pretty well. You may get some article results as well as forum results.

    Except you have to spell it correctly ;-) Horse, not house.

    site:chronofhorse.com "Broad Brush"

    Copy and paste that into Google and you'll get what you were after.
