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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

      • Totally bummed as Omaha Beach was gonna be my pick.

        Now probably Roadster.

        Mike was also one of my first thoughts. Now he's probably w/o a KD mount after being aboard the horse of his choosing and morning line favorite.

        Maybe the reason I love animals so much is because the only time they have broken my heart is when they've crossed that rainbow bridge

          He won't be without a Derby mount by tomorrow. I'm sure the scrambling and shuffling is already happening.

            The breeding rights going to Spendthrift was a given considering that B. Wayne Hughes saved Rick Porter's life two years ago. The announcement was just made now. But both Hughes and Porter are sportsmen first and foremost. Assuming there's nothing more going on than we've been told, Omaha Beach will be back on the track after they've fixed the problem.

              If/when that's the case, wonder who get's booted so Mike has a seat at the table.

              Wonder if he'll end up on any of Baffert's other 3...

              • I will be very surprised if Mike has a Derby mount. You just don’t jump ship this close to the biggest race of the horse’s career.

                • Very disappointed for Omaha Beach and the connections. I really thought he had a great chance at it. On the other hand, I just realized that I have a bet on Tacitus at 96-1 in the future books. It's just $2, but still, that's two power bills (non winter version) if he wins.

                  • Rick Porter has to have the worst luck of anyone in the game... every "high" he experiences seems to be followed by a crushing blow. Does the heartbreak ever end for him?

                      I envy you! Love that horse, although not quite as much as Omaha Beach. Now I actually have to do some handicapping, and it's not a talent of mine.

                      • I'm liking Maximum Security at this point. I loved the way he just galloped along with his ears forward in the Florida Derby, and then cruised away from Bodexpress. Hopefully he breaks well and stays out of traffic.

                        • Haikal in doubt now with foot abscess. I'm sure owners sometimes wonder why horses can't come up with a problem BEFORE paying that entry fee instead of a day or two after.

                          • Since I've actually been to Fair Hill I have to go with WinWinWin as he's based there. I loved his response in the workout last weekend, but hope he didn't run his race then.

                              Mike didn't jump ship. The horse "sank" out from under him.

                              Unless you mean another jockey jumping ship so Mike can have the mount? If so, I would think that decision isn't up to the other jockey.

                                I was speaking as a trainer. No trainer is going to jump ship two days before the derby.

                                  I believe for races like the Derby (in this case, Triple Crown) there is a nomination process. The earlier you get involved, the less you pay. There is also a fee to enter the Derby and a starting fee.

                                  • What is the recovery time for surgery for an entrapped epiglottis?

                                    Would it be possible for Omaha Beach to make either of the two other TC races or is he out until late summer/fall?

                                    Don't know if surgery is in the plan, this was more of an idle curiosity question

                                      He will be out until later in the summer. It's all explained in this article: https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-rac...kentucky-derby

                                        The nomination fee for the Triple Crown is $500 if you do it early (most, and in fact, hundreds of horses are nominated early.) The late fee is higher, maybe $5,000?

                                        To enter the Derby costs $25,000. It takes an additional payment of $25,000 to start.

                                          LaurieB, thanks. I read that article but obviously didn't read for detailed comprehension (mine ) further on down regarding surgery and future plans. If late June, at the earliest, then TC races are out but could possible make some of the mid-summer classics (assuming he doesn't pull a "Justify" and just retire from racing which I hope doesn't happen).

                                          I Googled a few different combinations of keywords and couldn't really find detailed info on what it would cost to enter the TC races. I did find the early nomination of $500 and the $25k/$25k to enter and start the KD. Somewhere I found a mention of $200K for a horse not nominated but couldn't confirm that for 2019.

                                          I know early nominations are pretty inexpensive. My never saw a racetrack TB was BC nominated but when done as a foal, it was really, really inexpensive. Better to nominate early and inexpensive if possible (at least IMO).

                                          Have to admit as I am sitting here typing and listening to TVG talk about Saturday's weather forecast and it sounds like possible/probably rain which would have been, IMO, right up Omaha Beach's alley ouch
