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!

    You're welcome. LaurieB Breeds her mares,races their offspring and sometimes sells one or two at the sales. It's always fun to watch when she has one in the sale so we can see it and root for a good price for her.

    I watch the sales online and am not in the business. I've worked for small private TB breeders in the past and enjoy keeping up with breeding and bloodlines.

    LaurieB is more knowledgeable than I am about racing and the particulars of the sales and has been kind enough (for years now) to answer my questions as well.

      The Keeneland September Sale begins on Sunday the 13th at 12pm Eastern time. If you go here;https://www.keeneland.com/sales on the day, it will say "Watch the sale live" (or something similar) and if you click on that you'll be watching! There is no charge to watch the sale.

      Here are the days that the different hip #s sell https://www.keeneland.com/sites/defa...HipSummary.pdf

      The horses in Book 1 have the fanciest pedigrees and conformation/looks. The Arrogate filly that you like is hip #2 in the first session of Book 1. As you can see here http://flex.keeneland.com/saleindex/saleindex.html , the order in which they sell within their Book is determined alphabetically by their Dam's name.

      The horses in the lower books can be just as successful at the races as the horses in the higher books (and some will be just as expensive too.)

      thanks! Yes, I’ll be at work unfortunately 😢 will have to check the results later!

He stood at Claiborne or Gainesway or one of the big time studs for awhile. He wound up in NY and died after or during his second colic surgery. He was a Seattle Slew grandson by Slew 'o Gold. It was a great experience but OMG! was I tired at the end of each day!!! I got to show the Northern Dancers and other ones of smaller stature because I am so short they looked bigger. It is grueling!

                    Rather than send my long, link filled post into unapproved limbo by editing, I'll just say here that the half to Bodemeister has been withdrawn. I'm sure that more horses in the links I posted will be withdrawn as well. I won't update the outs here when they are easily seen in the catalog on Keeneland's website.

                    There's also the possibility that I am, in effect, posting this to myself.

                            It's interesting to see the TB sales videos after watching STDB videos. The STDB videos are done with them loose, so you can see them trot out. Some occasionally pace.

                              Notable is the absence of VanMeter Sales from the list of consignors in both F.T. and Keeneland catalogs. I wonder how long the ban will continue.

I watched one yearling sell yesterday on the online feed, until my computer froze. But I can't imagine that it went well. Racing is in it's death throws here, I fear. I'm glad I'm out of it. 25 years ago, our track was on the borderline of whether it was going to continue to be an A circuit track, or become a bush track, and die. The second option was chosen. The industry is suffering badly here, and worse with covid. Such a shame, for the horses, and for the people who love racing. So many have left our area already for greener pastures.
                                  And our Yearling Sale was September 2. 230 catalogued, I think only 142 actually sold. Will also be the last yearling sale being held on the Woodbine grounds.

                                  I did get a decent Bayern filly for not much money. Really shouldn't have bought anything, but trainer had checked her out and liked her, so up went the hand.
                                  What you allow is what will continue.

                                    Fasig Tipton September sale which was unusual in that it included yearlings from their cancelled July and Saratoga sales.

                                    668 cataloged with 132 outs. They sold 348. 177 not sold according to Fasig Tipton. Their numbers don't add up but only 10ish off, they're close enough to get the gist. Barely half sold.

                                    Why will this be the last yearling sale at Woodbine?

                                    Congratulations on your Bayern filly! You know we'd love to see a photo.

                                      Woodbine has partnered with Metrolinx, a company that runs rail based rapid transit, to put a station on the south end of the grounds where the sales pavilion and barns are. The line is already there, as it runs from Union Station to Toronto Pearson Airport.
                                      Woodbine Entertaiment has grand plans, including a new casino, entertainment venue, a hotel..... This link explains it all.
