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!

      Pharoah had five on the pre entries. I wonder if that's a record for a freshman sire.

          Any one believe that the road to HOY doesn't run through the Classic this year?

          I'm thinking I'd agree with this statement

                  This was my thought as well if I take the Classic out of the HOY equation. I'm not even sure I'd put McKenzie as HOY if he wins the Classic unless both Midnight Bisou and Bricks And Mortar both get the pants beat off them.

                  If both Midnight Bisou and Bricks And Mortar win, hard call IMO For me, McKenzie wouldn't be in the discussion.

                  Pretty cool... TVG is doing a daily Breakfast At The Breeders Cup and this morning SA had the turf course open for working with cones placed to keep the horses on the outer half of the track. Simon Bray observed that the horses were getting nice, lovely turf which hadn't been used to race on

                    Well, you can't remove the Classic from the equation totally because if Code of Honor wins it, he is going to dominate the HOY conversation regardless of whether or not people think there is another horses that's more deserving.

                      If Bisou wins here race you'd think she'd be a straight shot for HOY considering she's unbeaten in 7 races thus far this season. All graded stakes. I hope she wins it and I hope shes HOY. Very deserving. Awesome mare.

                      Bricks and Mortar has 5 races under his belt this year. undefeated. All graded Stakes. I hope he doesn't get the nod simply because he won the Pegasus which was a sorry excuse of a worlds richest race.

                      Big Code of Honor fan over here mainly because I thought his sire was worth looking at and people called me crazy!. 7 races under his belt this year. He is not undefeated. He won 4 of those, all graded stakes.

                        I am curious... why would Code Of Honor be HOY if he wins the Classic (maybe my neophyte-ism is showing )? He's 4-1-1, including 4 G1, with one off the board in 7 races this year while Bricks and Mortar is 5-0-0 in 5 races including 4 G1, other than all of Bricks and Mortar's races are turf. Midnight Bisou is undefeated in 7 races this year including 3 G1.

                          Because he's a three year colt in an industry that cares about three year old colts more than any other kind of horse.

                          And the Travers and JC Gold Cup wins have already put him squarely in the middle of the conversation.

                            LaurieB that makes sense (the 3YO part anyway) even if I don't agree

                            To me, and I get I'm not the "industry", I like looking at overall performance... Bricks and Mortar has won some nice races as has Midnight Bisou. But, a turf colt and a dirt filly; neither of which are "popular" choices for HOY.

                            Saturday will be a fun day with some solid favorites and some fields a bit more wide open...

                              I think B&M or Midnight Bisou probably will get HOY with a victory.

                              To me, one of the most interesting end of year awards will be the 3-year-old championship. I think COH and maybe even Omaha Beach with victories would have a good case at it, although COH a stronger one with a victory in the classic. I truly think Omaha is the best 3-year-old this year, but the poor horse has had the worst luck. Without the surgery and with a full season, I think he probably would have had the championship well sewn up by now. I do think COH has been masterfully handled and developed and is peaking. I remember thinking back at his Fountain of Youth victory that he looked like a greyhound. He's still lighter but has filled out a good bit and obviously matured. I would love to see him race at 4. I think he's one who will only get better with time.

                                  Probably not without paying. You can go to the TVG website and see what they charge. If you get NBCSN at home, you can go to their website and enter your info.

                                  Bloodhorse has replays but sometimes it takes awhile for them to be available.
