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!

Technically he would be a Triple Crown winner, but the length between races and the Belmont distance change definitely puts all three into a different category. And, of course, the timing to later in the season may self-eliminate some of the competition. A mere asterisk beside the name would seem to merit a bit more explanation.
    I have the same misgivings. The "Belmont Stakes" this year just wasn't. It was a mile and an eighth race with the name Belmont Stakes tacked

    The easiest solution to the issue is of course, the same horse not winning all three of the races. If one does, it will be difficult, but an asterisk would really be the only solution since TPTB insist on calling this years races the "Triple Crown".

    The winner of the "Belmont Stakes" this year should have an asterisk as well since it was not a 12 furlong effort. I think changing the distance without changing the name was a poor decision.

      She would have been in front of past Acorn winners like Cicada, Ruffian, Shuvee, Susan's Girl... and the last 3 winners - Abel Tasman, Monomoy Girl and Guarana. Sounds like good company to me!

This is not me being a simple conspiracy theorist. the industry has made its own bed regarding drugs. I trust no one.
        I didn't say I believe the 'inadvertent contamination' comment (and to be honest, not even sure I heard enough to be sure).

        We'll see what happens after the B-test results are in (and they may already be and the investigation is continuing). IIRC, already a big brew-ha about the first split test result being 'leaked' to the public... wouldn't be surprised if the current investigation is being held more tightly (as it is supposed to be).

          Another one bites the dust. Technically off the KD trail but Gouverneur Morris has been diagnosed with colitis after being treated in a hyperbolic chamber at Fair Hill for a leg infection double

          Hoping he comes through this successfully and we see him back at the track either later this year or for a 4yo season.

            Did the horse come out of the "hyperbolic chamber" less, or more inclined to exaggerate the experience?

              ok, ok.... blame it on auto-correct

              Those double infections are a real PITA to cure!

                  Ahhhh,... hyperbolic I thought it sounded a bit weird when I typed it (word for word) but didn't really catch it should have been hyperbaric (or so I assume).

                  So I'm a bit slow tonight but at least I have a lame excuse

                    A stallion deal has been made for Tiz the Law. He will stand at Ashford Stud upon his retirement from racing.

                      Just saw this... Ashford definitely has a nice, high priced collection at the moment

                      Although if I did have a nice mare with the right pedigree and $$, there might be others I would also consider. I keep seeing Info Mischief performing well on the track.

                      It sure can be fun to dream with no money

                      Just had a curiosity question pop into my head with situations such as Tiz the Law. If an agreement is reached with a stud farm (Coolmore in this case), does any $$ change hands now or only upon actual retirement of the horse? Would Coolmore or Sackatoga Stable be able to get any kind of insurance on Tiz the Law if he were to pass away prior to retirement? Would it depend on cause of death?

                      Yes, I know every agreement is different in terms of both $$ and breeding rights but curious about what general convention is.

                      As I'm typing this, I can see the Coolmore stallion roster scrolling across their web page. They have a nice roster and their stallions are not all at the high end of prices. One would pay for performance and pedigree but still nice choices

                        Wow, Churchill Downs just announced that there could be spectators at the Kentucky Derby.

                        Everything will be carefully controlled to prevent the spread of the virus. After all, it is so easy to manage that drunken, partying crowd. (Where is the sarcasm emoji?)

                        I have never attended the Derby, and I don't think I will start this year.

                          This announcement in light of what is occurring nationally with the resurgence, boggled my mind.

                            "Could" is the operative word. Whether or not there are spectators at the Derby will be decided by Governor Beshear, not CDI.

                              Yes, money changes hands now, although probably not all of it. There will also be bonus clauses in the contract for future races that Tiz the Law might win.

                              I'm sure Sackatoga has the horse heavily insured now, and Coolmore will immediately do the same with their portion. The horse would have already had mortality insurance, now I'd imagine his potential fertility will also be insured.

                                According to Knowlton, they plan to race him next year....
                                ..."We are excited to see what Tiz the Law has in store on the track for the remainder of his 3-year-old year and beyond, and then look forward to his career as a stallion at Ashford."

                                    From what I can see of his photos he looks like a well built horse. He resembles his sire.

                                      Read the article:

                                      Seems like The Guv is on board with having spectators.

                                        LaurieB thanks. The bonus clauses, which I didn't even think about, make sense in allowing a 'price' now based on past performance while covering future performance or lack thereof (ie, so if Tiz the Law, for some reason, stops running at least there is base price.)

                                        Another didn't realize (and assumed maybe not insurable) that race horses could be insured, while racing, for loss of use (I'm assuming) as well as mortality. Fertility would make sense as I somewhere got the impression that coverage would need to be in place prior to actually breeding (but why fertility now vs upon retirement while he's on the van to Ashford?)

                                          This might actually the only year where you could go and NOT be smashed cheek to jowl and wouldn't have to worry about finding a place to sit.
