Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

  • Yet another Thoroughbred pedigree...

    I know that you guys get a lot of these, so thanks a million in advance for your help!

    I just purchased this guy to be my next sport horse project, but since I have never gone the Thoroughbred route before, I am not very familiar with their bloodlines.

    I really like how he was put together, but the people I bought him from had absolutely no clue on where he came from (they recieved him from a college vet clinic) or even his name (they told me his registered name was something silly that it certainly was not). I looked him up on the jockey club website by his tattoo number and I ended up with a black-type winner bred by Juddmonte Farms who only raced 14 times (2 times stakes starter) and won about 190K. I know this is modest, but I still thought he might have been raced more, or at least placed somewhere better than the field I found him in. I have no clue how he got lost in the shuffle, or why he was at a vet clinic (since they found nothing wrong with him in terms of soundness or even any old issues).

    With that being said, I was curious if anyone knows anything about his lines....I'm looking for commentary on possible scope for jumping, mind (its hard to tell this close in, since he has been through so much and is a nervous wreck...I am letting him relax slowly, but I want to make sure that he doesn't have a propensity toward the crazy), and longevity in sport.

    Thanks again!

    Nice bloodlines! And there is a nice pic of him on pedigreequery.com if you look him up..... yummy!

    I looked up his race record and his last race was an $80,000 claimer and he placed 2nd. 2 years ago. Ridden by some names like Edgar Prado and Kent Desormeaux. I wonder what happened?

      I am not really sure what happened to this poor guy. All I know is that I was quite suprised after looking up his tattoo number.
      I don't want to think something untoward happened to him, but the fact that noone knew who he was or bothered to look up his tattoo before I bought him and got him to my place is strange to me, especially since the Jockey Club is providing this service for free so that this sort of mis-identity does not happen.
      It was brought up that when he was deposited at the clinic the person who put him there said he had a lower branch suspensory strain, but the vet has said that he was sound from the moment he was on the property and that all x-rays are clean.
      Furthermore, even though I am not a thoroughbred breeder and know nothing about bloodlines, I think that it is strange that the first thing they did was geld him at the clinic, without even bothering to look up his tattoo.
      Things are strange in this situation for sure, and even if I cannot get to the bottom of all of this, I am confident that I can give him a good home and hopefully find him a job that he likes as well.

            I think this economy has changed the kind of TBs that are being made available for those of us buying OTTBs. I hope that things go very well for you and your new boss.

              I do wish we would use microchips in North America instead of Tattoos. The Brits/Irish do it, the Aussies and Kiwis are now doing it instead of brands, and the French and Germans are also moving to it. With microchips, there is no chance of misreading the tattoo or losing it with time. Tattoos are so hard to read and mistakes are often made.

              If your guy had been microchipped, he wouldn't have gotten lost.

                This is the reason I'm very seriously looking at ordering microchips for anything that leaves my farm, before they go. It's just one more level of identification.

                  If you read his race charts, he ran as a gelding, so he was gelded long before that, if I'm understanding your account of his history correctly.

                    Your horse has excellent bloodlines for sport. The Caro line produces great jumpers (even if they're usually grey!). Damascus, Graustark, Alleged, Buckpasser -- this is all really top-notch.

                    Good luck and have fun.

                      Wow, he is a very good looking horse. I bet you will have a lot of fun with him!

                      Here's a direct link to the pedigree with a picture of him, if anyone wants it:

                        Thats good to know. I must have missed it on his race chart. When I looked him up at the Jockey Club to change his owner of record into my name, they still had him listed as a stallion for some reason, so I changed that information as well. It must have just not been updated.

                        Thanks for all the comments. I feel pretty lucky to have found this guy after looking for several months at different tracks up in the midwest. I am very excited to see what he can do in the future!

                        *Edit*
                        After looking at his results on Equibase I don't see where it is on the report where it says gender for all horses running, only for the winner. The last time he won on October 3, 2008 it listed him as a horse, whereas in the Jefferson Cup, the winner was listed as a Gelding. Again, I don't know much about reading these charts and could just be wrong, but I am curious for my future knowledge. The Gelding distinction on the first page of the lookup only changed after the Jockey Club was notified that he was Gelded. My information that he was gelded at the clinic was from the person I purchased him from, but then again they told me that his name was Frank Sinatra. (Thankfully, his tattoo is very clear and several different people have read the same number, blinded to what the others have read. He also looks exactly the same as the picture linked above, except he has lightened up quite a bit and has a ton of hair from standing in a pasture in Iowa).
                        Thanks again for the info guys!

                          The 2007 maiden race he won listed him as gelding. But I suppose it could have been a mistake, and I didn't look at the other wins.
                          Edited to add that the 7/18/08 win also lists him as a gelding.

                              Yep, I went back and looked through them all again and most of them say Gelding and only that one says horse. I guess maybe the people who I got him from who said his name was Frank Sinatra got their horses mixed up! Thanks for checking again and sorry that I confused myself!

                                Thanks! When I thought he was Frank Sinatra, I was looking for other names....no offense to any Frankie fans...but no. I do really like Trimaran though, so I am going to keep his name for showing.

                                As for barn names, I like to experiment until I find something that fits their personalities. He has been such a wreck these past two days, that I dont want to base his barn name off of how he is acting right now, so hopefully he will relax and I can come up with something not so embarassing for him, altho my other horses will attest that my barn names are usually goofy.

                                My boyfriend calls him Pancakes, and refuses to call him anything else, saying he has always wanted a horse named Pancakes....so I guess we will see if that sticks....altho I don't think I can see myself riding around going "Goodboy Pancakes! Thats the way to do it."

                                  I like the nickname "Pan". You got a beauty, he's a lucky boy that you found him, it seems when horses start in a downward spiral it ends bad.

                                    Caro does throw a good line of athletic horses but he can also throw his temperament. He wasn't the easiest horse from what I've read and heard as I had a gelding that was 2nd gen Caro and the temperament was definitely passed down. But the Dam's side will of course have influence too.

                                      A very athletic pedigree for sporthorses. For potential towards difficult temperment...on the dam side Turn To can throw some tough horses though Sir Gaylord is one of the sons most often seen in sporthorse pedigrees so I would not worry about that one so much. Hoist The Flag can also sire some tough ones.
