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!

  • Last day of Saratoga on FS2 lol afternoon, including the Hopefull

    If you want to see next years Derby colts making their debuts or very early in their careers as 2 year olds, this is your day. Some other Maiden and NW races too.

    If yesterday was any indication, there will be some surprises and the gate crew will be busy...two fillies got out from under their jocks trying to load into the gate in the same race. One was retrieved after a chase other one made it all the way back to her stall, including jumping the outside rail. Unhurt.

    In another race, a highly regarded filly by AP demonstrated she favored the fact she’s chestnut mare more then then her daddy’s laid back temperament depositing Irad O in the dirt but she didn’t go anywhere, wasn’t hurt and Irad walked out of a pretty bad limp from getting stepped on...hope he’s up to riding in every race .today. NY automatically scratches these but they have to get them off the track, when they can catch them . By the time the Spinnaway went off, post time was almost a full 30 mins behind.

    Gotta love the babies, tho none of these three fillies was a first timer but maybe they debuted to a sparser, quierter crowd.

    Intersting that DWL is on a bit of a streak, win by a really nice filly and starts an AP son today, couple of other APs expected to start.

    Enjoy.

    Or TVG (ie, not just FS2).

    Let's see, no racing at Gulfstream Park - they canceled yesterday and today a few days ago at the behest of Dorian

    The 2 fillies that escaped prior to the gate opening were at Saratoga IIRC, on turf. TVG commentators made some interesting comments when the second filly did her 'I'm free, I'm free' rendition

    Not sure which race or horse Irad was on yesterday where he came off, before or after the gate opened (but I might have missed something comparing entries vs restyles. ) Or it wasn't Irad

    Today, pickings are slim with Saratoga, Monmouth and Del Mar being the only big name tracks racing with Gulfstream cancelled.

    Saratoga has the Bernard Baruch Handicap, Race 9, and the Runhappy Hopeful Stakes, Race 10. Today is Saratoga's last day of the 2019 summer meet And, lastly, Saratoga appears to be rainy today

    Nothing big on the Monmouth card.

    Del Mar has the Runhappy Del Mar Futurity, Race 9. Today is also the last day of the summer 2019 meet

      Hopefully the horse that fell in the last is OK.

      I’m still lame from walking 5 miles a day in sandals for 2 weekends in a row, but thankfully I don’t get tested.

        Unfortunately not if the Footnotes on Equibase are correct.

        BOROUGH BOY hustled from the gate, showed the way three to four wide under light coaxing, swung four wide into upper stretch displaced from command, dug in under a drive and took a bad step near the eighth pole, fell heavily and unfortunately had to be euthanized on track.
        Very strange Runhappy Del Mar Futurity. Odds on favorite Eight Rings, #2, spooked to the inside just after coming out of the gate... appeared to be before the opening (they started from the chute). Drayden Van Dyke came off as did Flavien Pratt on the #1 Storm the Court. Both horses appeared to be fine... Storm the Court caught by an outrider at the quarter pole, Eight Rings crossed the finish line.

        Flavien Pratt is ok. Drayden Van Dyke has been take to the hospital; moving all extremities and, IIRC, complaining of pain in one hand.

        Followed by Garth, the second favorite tossed the anchor out going around the far turn. Objection by Ginobili against Nucky (the winner), no changes. Both Nucky and Wrecking Crew (who finished 2nd) went off at the longest odds on the board.

        Hope DVD is ok.

          Someone needs to track the filly down that jumped the rail and give her a career over jumps!

            one of the 2 fillies that escaped during loading in the 7th race was Osaka Girl with Johnny V not in the irons. Believe she’s the one that repotedly tried out for the Hunters. Didn’t get the second fugitives name but the camera was on the announcers with that one zipping by first one way, then the other, then back again in the distance behind their heads. It was kind of funny, nothing injured but some egos.

            In race 8, MSW on the dirt, Orsay, Chestnut filly by AP sent out by Chad Brown, dumped Irad Ortiz and stepped on him before entering the gate. She just counts as another scratch. Don’t know if anybody tracks horses that get to the gate but never into it as anything but a scratch.

            Poor Borough Boy was running well, tired and dropped back into traffic then suddenly collapsed sort of splaying behind and sitting down before going over on his side dropping the jock behind him instead of sending him off over the front end. No warning, poor guy hit hard and had the wind knocked out of him but walked off with a little help. Far as the poor horse, that was a weird one...wonder what gave way....? Saw one go like that years ago that turned out to be a cardiac event.. Also hope nobody had a claim in on him.

            On the plus side must have watched 60 or 70 races this summer without incident. Sad way to wrap.

              So how many horses died at the Saratoga meet? One website said over a dozen. What happened to the horse who collapsed in the stretch a day or two before Borough Boy?

                If one wishes to believe PETA, 13 at Saratoga including Borough Boy.

                PETA does not choose, IMO for obvious reasons, to differentiate between training and racing fatalities. Since it is unclear if there are 13 racing or just "13 fatalities" hard to know without clarification which were training and which were racing.

                Tossing out a number and making it sound gruesome usually appears to work for PETA

                Can't quickly find anything else that reflects fatalities through the close of the meet.

                Interesting verbiage at the top of this web page (which I typically don't frequent PETA in any way shape or form).

                Animals are not ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.
                So, PETA would not like me ultimately because my Border Terriers are used for my entertainment at times when we go to a Scent Work trial and play

                  Why don't you check NYRA's database?

                    IMO, not the easiest database to find or use.

                    https://data.ny.gov/widgets/q6ts-kwhk

                    It would appear that the number 13 includes racing and training plus one that was classified as 'not racing' @ Rood & Riddle (vs track or training track).
                    No links to read more about the fatality, just that it happened.
