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 are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

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!

  • Northern Dancer sons?

    Out of curiosity- how many Northern Dancer sons are still actively standing stud. As in, available for breeding, and actually settling mares?

    I know Dixieland Band, who is 28 this year, is at Lane's End- and standing for 50K. Any others?

    TIA!

          The Blood-Horse site (www.stallionregister.com) shows three more:
          Night Shift - Coolmore Stud, IRE, 15,000 Euros
          Sadler's Wells - Coolmore Stud, IRE, Private
          Shotiche - Boehlke Farm, MN, Private

          Daughters of Northern Dancer are getting quite rare, too. His last foals were born in 1988, so his youngest daughters would be in their 20s.

            I LOVED a gelding by Dixieland Band.....had I known that I WOULD end up with a second horse, I would have taken him in a second....as his trainer said, the fact that she sold him for $400 (bad sesamoid) tells me where he likely ended up. What a BEAUTIFUL mind he had, and a beautiful horse to look at too!

              Brisnet's Stallion Directory still has 97 Northern Dancer sons listed; unfortunately many of those stallions have in fact died, however, there are quite a few born in the 80's that I could not confirm living/dead. A partial list: Centauress, Obligato, Northern Symphony, Thorn Dance, Court Dance, Trapeze Dancer, and Son of Repute.

                I hope Adbass* is doing well! He's a grand horse, a real lovebug and a good producer who never got the chance to get the book he deserved due to his first owner.

                We raised two Adbass* foals, full brothers, both are outstanding - and completely different from one another!

                  The winner of the 8th at AQU today was Hurrah, by Pulpit X Wild Applause by ND.
                  Too bad none of his sons was more successful (on the track) here in the US.

                    We have a Northern Dancer broodmare She's 25 (born in 1983) and she had a healthy live foal last year but slipped this year and so is thankfully going to be retired. She's very much a grand old lady, though, and still going strong.

                      <<Too bad none of his sons was more successful (on the track) here in the US.>>

                      Well, Northern Dancer did lead the North American general sire list in 1971, and rank among the leading U.S. sires by number of U.S. stakes winners, average earnings per runner and average earnings per start on more than one occasion, and it takes more than just good fillies to put up those numbers.

                      So many of his best colts were either bred by owners who raced in Europe (El Gran Senor, Nureyev, Sadler's Wells, etc.) or sold at auction and raced exclusively in Europe (Nijinsky, The Minstrel, Secreto, Shareef Dancer, Storm Bird, Northern Baby, etc.), which makes his North American record even more impressive.

                      His US-raced colts included Hero's Honor (homebred for Paul Mellon), multiple G1 winner of nearly $500,000, Herat, G2 SW of $771,415 and 2nd in the G1 Santa Anita H., Dixieland Band (homebred for Bayard Sharp), multiple G2 winner of over $440,000 who defeated classic winner Caveat as a 2yo), Canadian champion and multiple US SW One For All ($349,205), Belmont Park graded SW Glow ($344,392), Belmont/Aqueduct graded SW Dance Spell ($326,090), True North ($308,073), and Jim Dandy S. winner Music of Time (another Mellon homebred, I think).

                      Please note - most of these horses raced from the late 60's through the mid-80's when a $100,000 stakes race was HUGE money, and their earnings would easily be at least double or triple at today's purse figures (for example, the Jim Dandy S. was a $35,000-added Grade 3 when Music of Time won it). Also, a lot of them won races that are major graded stakes today but raced before stakes were graded.

                      He also sired Canadian champions Northernette ($404,914, Top Flight H-G1, etc.), Giboulee (G3, & 2nd Flamingo H-G1, etc), Fanfreluche (Alabama S, etc.), Lauries Dancer (Alabama S, etc), Nice Dancer (G3), Dance In Time, Viceregal, and Dance Act, plus such top fillies as Alma North ($513,597, Matchmaker S.-G1, etc), Dance Number ($415,418, Beldame S-G1, etc), Savannah Dancer ($360,600, Del Mar Oaks-G2, etc.), Larida ($328,319, Orchid H-G2, etc), White Star Line ($256,780, Alabama S-G1, Kentucky Oaks-G1, etc), Spit Curl ($255,639, Alabama S-G1, etc), and the aforementioned Wild Applause ($240,136, Diana H-G2, etc.).

                        Starry Night

                        Hi!!!

                        We had the stallion Starry night direct son from northern dancer.
                        He dies last winter from colic and it was sutch a shame. He was 23 years old.
                        He had breed a lot of winners here in our little country. He was the most expensive horse importede to Denmark at this time when he came.

                        So we can only say we miss him a lot
