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.

  • Preakness to be held October 3rd

    What a weird Triple Crown this year. Kentucky Derby is September 5th. Preakness a month after that. I don’t know if there is a date for the Belmont. Just yikes 😳

    The Maryland Jockey Club has stated that is an unfounded rumor at this point and no date has been set yet.

      My bad. I saw it over multiple sites and figured it was true. I’ll be more sure to fact check.

        I shared it too as I did have it from three different sources but the only source that matters says not true so here we are. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be accurate in the long run though. There usually aren't that many sources posting the same thing for no reason.

          I saw it reported from multiple credible sources too. But now it's quickly been recanted.

          If the Preakness is run on October 3rd, the NYRA will virtually have no choice but to run the Belmont before the Derby. Because after the "proposed" Preakness date, they will run into the Breeders Cup. What a mess.

                BC, first weekend in November.

                I agree with LaurieB, what a mess given 2 months between KD and BC... not much time to squeeze in 2 races of the caliber and athletic performance as the Preakness and Belmont.

                snaffle1967, a quick Google search would have provided all the information you'd want about Breeders' Cup 2020.

                  I didn’t fall for their fake diversion, I knew it would be October 3rd but they did get their 20 seconds of fame. Wonder if Belmont is going to do the same thing for their rescheduled date announcement in 3 weeks? Also wondering if the Belmont runs before the Derby this year? I could see that happening for sure.

                    That would really be interesting. You know, I was always under the impression that the mile and a half of the Belmont- after a grueling few weeks of racing with the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, was the ultimate test. Having a horse hold on to that Belmont finish line made quite a statement.

                    So, if the Preakness is last, does that change the dynamics of the Triple Crown?

                      It was changed the day they decided to give the horses 4 extra months to prepare for the Derby but yes, it definitely changes things. The difference in Belmont stakes attendance when there is a TC on the line versus when there isn’t varies by like 100k people back before they started limiting attendance so the Preakness may be similarly affected but people may go just to say they were there. Who knows? This year is so weird there is no predicting anything.

                          Belmont... seems like it has to be before the KD or sometime in December after BC which has already said they are not moving their dates (first weekend in November).

                          If the Belmont is run before the KD, then is the TC really the 'Triple Crown'? Yes, the 3 races but not in the same order and the time between the races will be different.

                          Right now, 3 weeks between KD and Preakness, 4 weeks between Preakness and TC.

                          No place to stuff in a 1 1/2 mile race except before KD or after TC.

                          What would have more value... a TC winner (no guarantee and maybe of less value than when the races are held on the traditional dates) or a BC Classic winner?

                          IMO, rough year to have a nice 3YO. Maybe these big races will help the later maturing colts but still a challenge to know the course to take..

                            There's been some speculation of running the Belmont late June/early July, at a shorter distance. If that happens and the same horse sweeps all three, it's an asterisk TC for sure.

                              Me, I wouldn't be calling that a TC... but that's just me...

                                I wouldn't call it a Triple Crown either.

                                I think when you change the timing, the spacing, the order, and the distance of the races, too many things are different to say it's a Triple Crown, even with an asterisk. The whole point of the Belmont is that it's long, and that it comes at the end of a grueling five weeks of top class racing. If you shorten the race and run it at an unrelated time, it doesn't demand the same quality of performance that it's supposed to.

                                    This TC will always have an asterisk by it so I actually hope this year there is NOT one. But I would rather see the Belmont run first then have it in November. There were other years when the order was not the same although way back. I do NOT want to see the Belmont shortened. They should just run it late June. (IMO)

                                      Eternal optimism....

                                      Tiz the Law is being targeted for the Belmont even though NYRA hasn't said when or how it will be run. (Scheduled date of June 16 is not confirmed nor is any possible change in distance been mentioned.)

                                      Sackatoga's managing partner Jack Knowlton has said, in a perfect world (is it ever ) maybe Belmont, Travers (maybe moved to early August), KD on September, Preakness in October, BC in November.

                                      Tiz the Law is currently 2nd in KD points.

                                      Nothing like planning your race schedule with the first 2 race dates unconfirmed...

                                        My personal opinion is that the Belmont should keep its distance. Run it in August. However; it would conflict with the Saratoga meet/Travers. Or keep it in June/July time frame and expect to run with no spectators. The problem with Belmont is that you cannot shuffle the races much as they conflict with the planned meet occurring in Toga.

                                        Belmont certainly got the shaft on the deal this year. I just hope the races actually go off and perhaps the ones run in the later fall will have spectators. Fingers crossed
