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!

  • Cheltenham Festival 2011 streaming

    Hi race fans,

    I thought I'd share this with anyone who is in the US but would like to see the racing at Cheltenham next week.

    http://justin.tv/cheltenhamfestival

    This guy showed all four days, all races (that are shown on the BBC or Channel 4, whoever has it this year) last year live. He also showed the Aintree Grand National meeting, so hopefully he does the same this year.

    Also, if you want to enter a free contest where you predict the winning jockeys,trainers and horses for cash prizes...

    Enjoy!

      Oh yeah, another Champion Hurdle for Ireland.
      Serious animal this Hurricane Fly, I'd say he's good enough to win a G1 over 12f on the flat. Handsome looking horse too, if a bit small and light.

            The dreadful Daily Mail has a good wrap-up of Day 1, easy to understand even if you're not an avid punter.

            Also, the Independent had a highly enjoyable visit with Sparky May and her human connections (a small-time breeder/trainer/owner and no-name jockey), made even nicer by the mare's 2nd-place finish today. They were hoping for the top 6, so they must be over the moon tonight.

              Sorry Madeline. He changed the stream "address" last minute. This should be the correct one...

              Hope to see you there tomorrow. Plenty more good racing to come.

                The Irish took 6 of 7 today. Celebrating St. Patrick's Day early, I guess.

                Notable wins from Sizing Europe in the Queen Mum and Jessica Harrington's Bostons Angel in the RSA Chase.

                  Thanks for the update, but yesterday was the day I had off.

                  HRTV carried all the races today, so I DVR'ed them. What a green day.

                      The fairytale festival continues for the team of Pat Rodford and Kieran Burke. Rodford trains a small string of horses and is retiring as a trainer at the end of this season. Burke will be retiring as a jockey to take over Rodford's training business.

                      Today, their 25-1 shot, Holmwood Legend, won the Bourne Chase. From the Racing Post:

                      Rodford, 70, who appeared to have lost his best chance of a first festival winner in his farewell season when the Burke-ridden Sparky May was second to Quevega on Tuesday, saw his only other festival runner come good with a three-and-a-half-length success.

                      Before this year, Rodford had sent only one horse to the festival and that fell at the first. Burke, 25, hadn't ridden at the festival until Tuesday and now has a winner and a runner-up to his credit from two rides.

                        Race 4 - the Gold Cup .. I thought the old champ was going to pull it off. Long Run (age 6) takes the win but damn if Kauto Star wasn't going to make a race of it. after giving way it looks like 'Star' may have been nipped from taking 3rd but with a couple of hurdles to go it looked like the days of old.

                          As an aside - you have a twit like this who protested on course against the race sponsor. Let's see an 1,100-lb horse going at say 20-mph against a 180-lb man. Reminds me of the lunatic back at Pimlico in 1999 who tried to punch Artax with Jorge Chavez up.

                          ''As I turned for home, I couldn't believe my eyes,'' said Jerry Bailey, who rode Yes It's True. ''I thought I saw a man standing in the track, and as I got closer I realized it was. He was about eight feet off the rail, and I decided to hold my course and hope he wouldn't move into my path. As I got closer, he seemed to spread his legs and brace his arm to get hit.''

                          In 1995 a man apparently intent on suicide ran on the track in the middle of a race at Del Mar in California, but also was passed without injury.
                          Lee Chang Ferrell was barred for life from going onto any Maryland Jockey Club property.

                          I must say that I'm disappointed with HRTV's consistent refusal to mention horses who go down during races. TVG for all its focus on Pick-4s and other wagering at least does acknowledge promptly at the conclusion of the race if a horse goes down.

                          Does anyone recall the last time a US-based runner raced at Cheltenham?

                            Damn those dentists, stealing all the big prizes in equestrian sports! We had Hinrich Romeike taking gold in eventing in the 2008 Olympics, then today Sam Waley-Cohen, an amateur in the irons and a professional with a dental drill, takes the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

                            When will it stop? Don't we already have enough reasons to dislike dentists? Or should I just give up and apply to dental school?

                            (I cannot wait to watch the replay. But I don't want to be caught screaming in public...)

                              The only American trained horse I can remember running at Cheltenham (and by "Cheltenham" I presume we are talking about the traditional three day, now four day meeting, in March with all the big 'championship' races) is Flatterer, who came close to upsetting See You Then's quest for a three in a row in the Champion Hurdle in 1987.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxXzW...e_gdata_player

                              Lonesome Glory did win a race around Cheltenham racecourse in the 90's, but it was a handicap Chase on mid week Nov racecard.

                                Btw, today's Gold Cup was an absolute cracker.... Long Run, Denman, and Kauto landing nose for nose over the 2nd last. He's some animal the winner, but I thought he was out of it with a mile to go, didn't seem to be traveling fluenty. Some job of riding by Waley-Cohen to revive him. Special shout out to Denman, I roared my lungs out for him coming to the last, but the young horse was too much horse for him.
                                Jesus, I love jump racing, now have to wait a whole nutter year for Cheltenham to come around again.
