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.

  • Can a horse be entered in a race on the 6th then race again on the 7th?

    As the question states. I know nothing about entering horses to race, but a horse I know and have on my Equibase was entered in a race for the 6th of Oct. but then I just received notice that he is entered on the 7th of Oct. These both were final entry notices. Does this mean he was scratched from the 1st one? He is at the Hawthorne track in IL.
    Also is this a lower end track were horses go when they are about to finish there career? Thanks for any info.

    Yes he would be scratched . Horsmen often enter into a race with a condition that allows them to get out if the race they fit better fills within the calender week. I don't think Hawthorne is the bottom of the barrel for a horses career if they are sound and productive , but I am not from that area so I do not know if there is a B track in the vacinity.

      I wouldn't bet the farm that he is scratched. I have seen a horse run two days in a row before. Most likely he would be scratched but there is no rule that says he has to be.

        Most likely he would be scratched.But I have also seen horses race back within a couple days before(the Rick Dutrow trained horse Unrecquited comes to mind for me)

          I cant remember who it was at Laurel, but they ran a horse at Laurel, then took him to CT and ran him that night...

            Honky Tonk Babe won races on consecutive days at Yakima Meadows (yes, won both) when I was a little girl. 1993 or 1994.

              In 2005 Commercial Flyer ran on three consecutive days (winning twice). He had also ran twice in the previous nine days. So he ran five times in a total of twelve days and covered a total of 112f (14 miles).
              He won four of those races.

                Golden Man placed in two graded stakes races within approx 30-hours. He raced at Monmouth on a Saturday afternoon (July 16, 2005) in the Long Branch Stakes (Grade 3)and then went down to Delaware Park to race on Sunday (July 17, 2005) in the Grade 3 Leonard Richards [now the Barbaro Stakes].

                At the time that was the only known successful (hit the board) graded stakes, back to back effort that could be recalled by the historian at the National Museum of Racing for more then 50-years in the US.

                Albeit it not within two days, but certainly at a very competitive level, this summer El Real Madrid at Saratoga won 2 races and placed in another over the course of just 8 days.

                Wild Geese won two races in five days at Aqueduct in 2008.

                If people will recall there was the potential for the connections of Leathal Heat (f) to race her twice in the 2009 Breeders' Cup. BC Ladies' Classic and next day in the BC Turf Sprint. That may not have been their desire and regardless it didn't come to pass anyhow based upon additional rules and circumstances.

                As for the way it used to get done. Bill Finley cites a few of the old stories:

                A horse racing on consecutive days is very rare, but not unprecedented. Trained by Carlos (King of the Fairs) Figueroa, a horse named Shannon's Hope did it when winning five races over an eight-day span in 1963 at the Weymouth and Marshfield Fairs. Rushaway won the 1936 Illinois and Latonia Derbies on consecutive days. Trainer King Leatherbury probably holds some sort of record for getting the most out of a horse in a short period of time. He once ran a horse during the day at Laurel and later the same night at Penn National. The two races were about six hours apart.
                Didn't King Leatherbury at Laurel Park in the last couple of years have a runner that won twice over 3 days? The racing office even sent out a press release on the rare feat.

                  Running back on a couple of days rest at a high level is actually not that uncommon, esp in sprint races. Every year there are a number of horses that will run in both the King's Stand Stakes G1 and Golden Jubilee Stakes G1 at the Royal Ascot meet, held four days apart. In 2003 Choisir won both races.
                  Probably even more impressive was Baddam winning the Ascot stakes (2m4f) and the Queen Alexandra Stakes (2m6f) four days apart in 2006. The following year he returned and ran in the Gold Cup G1 (2m4f), finishing 7th and two days later finished 2nd in the Queen Alexandra.

                  The Australians are particulalry adept at this running in major stakes on short turn around. In 2008 Viewed won the Melbourne Cup G1 ($4m) four days after he had finished 3rd in the MacKinnon Stakes G1.
                  I guess the Pletcher school of five to six weeks between races hasn't caught on down there.

                    Yakima Meadows!? Is that a training track now? I feel so bereft sp? of racehorses living out here. Where are you Slewdle and do you have some nice thoroughbreds that I can come and stare at? I might even be able to help you with grooming, walking, or training, sadly not undersaddle right now though.

                      I don't think Pletcher can do this with a horse if he was given an award to try.

                        Yakima's closed now, I think they last ran in '98. The track and grandstand are still there on the fairgrounds but from Google satellite, looks like the rail is gone and maybe they run dirtbikes now?

                        We're in western WA, if you need a TB fix let me know. No riding but you can meet my fat filly and our baby that has us with stars in our eyes. Lots of horses who'll tell you we don't feed them OR pet them. It's the icky time of year, though.

                            Thank you for all the interesting history! I love hearing great racing stories. Unfortunatly the boy I am speaking of has not done well at all this year and the last race he actually won was 4th of July 2009 when I went to see him race. I have known him since he just turned 2 and is soon to be 6 but I am following him because I want to make sure that when he is done racing he gets taken care of. I love this boy so much! So I got notice that he was scratched yesterday and he raced today and came in last ( I hope he will be back up here in MN soon so I can go see him.
                            Thanks again and if any of you ever run into L'etoile du nord (lovingly known as nerdy nordy) please give him a big kiss for me!

                              In terms of "frequent flyers" here is another example from Oz: So You Think

                              Oct 24, 2010 Sunday Herald-Sun: Bart Cummings eyes Melbourne Cup with So You Think after dominant WS Cox Plate victory

                              Cummings said if So You Think was to attempt to win the 150th Melbourne Cup he would run in the Group I Mackinnon Stakes on Saturday.

                              "It will relax him. ..."
                              Just won the G1 $3M-AU Cox Plate, airming for another race next Saturday in the Mackinnon Stakes, and then would race in the monumental Grade 1 Melbourne Cup just three days later.

                                Jesus.... he just pulled it off. So You Think just won the $1m MacKinnon Stakes G1 over 12f, a week after he won the $3m Cox Plate G1 over 10f... and in three days he will go for the triumvirate when he runs in the $4m Melbourne Cup on Tues.

                                Horse of the ages right here folks.

                                      According to the RP, he has approx $4.5m so far. He has won approx $2.7m of that is since August.
                                      Tonight's race is worth AUS$6m (~US$5.9m) of which the winner gets AUS$3.6m (~US$3.55m). So if he wins tonight he'll be just above the $8m mark.
