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!

  • Dubai World Cup 2008

    Ok, post your picks, who do you like????



    Godolphin Mile
    1600m (~1mile), $1m

    Diamond Stripes... looks best of a very mediocre bunch.

    UAE Derby
    1800m (~9f), $2m

    Honour Devil... classy looking Brazilian horse, though he was caught napping last time out by...
    Royal Vintage... continues his rivalry with Honour Devil, not much between these southern hemi breds the last couple of outings.

    Golden Shaheen
    1200m (~6f), $2m

    Diabolical... likes this track, won easily last time out.
    Benny the Bull... started the year well in the Sunshine Millions, a good chance to continue the US dominance of this race

    Dubai Duty Free
    1777m (~9f), $5m

    The most fascinating race on the card. Finsceal Beo, Darjina, Admire Aura, Bullish Luck, Creacadoir, Literato, Vodka, Niconero, class horses from Ireland, France, Japan, Britain, Hong Kong, Australia.. mouthwatering stuff.

    Creahadoir... to continue the form that saw him come good towards the end of last season
    Darjina... ran flat in Hong Kong, but at her best is as good a miler as there is inworld.

    Sheema Classic
    2400m (~12f), $5m

    Viva Pataca... Easily the best horse on paper, hard to see what could beat him.
    Doctor Dino... Came good at the end of last season, a season that saw him race on three continents and 5 differnet countries. Not a world beater, but the kind that could sneak an upset.

    World Cup
    2000m (~10f), $6m

    Curlin'.... hard to bet against this one, will have to produce a stinker to get beaten.
    Jalil... the form horse of the rest of the bunch, looks like he could recoup some of that $9.7m he cost as a yearling

    No pick but I just have to say I was deployed to the United Arab Emirates from last Sept. to this past Jan. and I got to go to the Dubai track and watch TB and Arabian races and it was just AMAZING! I also went to the Abu Dhabi track and watched TB's and Arabian races there too. BEAUTIFUL! I have pics I'll have to post them. Such a unique experience all in all.

      I am going to post this here (on Curlin thread).

      I will say, my dvr says nothing about abc and Dubai

      The World Cup, contested at 2,000 meters (about 1 1/4 miles), is the last of seven races Saturday night. The card's opener is for Arabians, followed by three dirt races, and two awesome grass stakes - the $5 million Duty Free and the $5 million Sheema Classic. Post time for the first Thoroughbred race is 9:40 a.m. Eastern in the U.S. The World Cup is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Eastern and will be broadcast on tape delay at 2:30 on ABC. The races can be seen live on HorseRacing TV and TVG and on many online wagering platforms and will be streamed in real time on espn360.com. U.S. bettors can play the World Cup online or at simulcasting facilities.
      Gotta go to work-picks later

        I wish I was more familiar with the international racing scene at the moment...

        Godolphin Mile--
        Diamond Stripes

        UAE Derby--
        I like Honour Devil best, but a part of me wants to cheer for Numaany after that bizarro win at Aqueduct.

        Golden Shaheen--
        Going American all the way on this one. Benny The Bull and Idiot Proof.

        Dubai Duty Free--
        Admire Aura

        Sheema Classic--
        Well of course Better Talk Now is going to redeem himself!

        World Cup--
        Curlin
        Don't fall for a girl who fell for a horse just to be number two in her world... ~EFO

            Btw, didn't list it above, but the first race on the card is the Kahayla Classic, a race for Arabians. Sheihk Hamdan/Shadwell's horse, Madjani, will be attempting a record third straight victory in this race.
            Suprisingly there are no Turkish runners, given they generally have the best Arabian runners, i guess the measly $250k purse doesn't make it worthe their while. 8 of the 9 runners are French bred. All runners are UAE based except for the English horse, Al Moutawakel.

            The field...

              It's on tv but it's apparently only on Dish...

              I just scanned thru tomorrows programming, and the Dish has two, count em, two horse racing channels, and Horse Racing tv has it coming I guess live at 6:00 a.m. CENTRAL time.
              The only irritation factor of this channel however is that the programs are run in half hour increments. TVG runs racing in a single program several hours in length.
              Another killer of threads

                  Can someone please tell me how to pronounce Finsceal Beo? Thanks.

                  Re picks, I don't know most of the horses running. In the WC, I have looked for a reason to pick against Curlin but have trouble finding them. I have nothing against the horse, just his owners. I would like to see Premium Tap win, though I don't think we will. Love the horse, though.

                        My friend who was kind enough to send me Curlin pics and updates was written up in Bloodhorse. His pic was on their main page earlier today. It's in the Dubai Blog section. I'll be speaking w/him from Nad al Sheba during the festivities tomorrow.

                          The only irritation factor of this channel however is that the programs are run in half hour increments. TVG runs racing in a single program several hours in length.

                          I must admit, I can't stand many of the announcers on HRTV. And, they often don't even show the post parade. The women are knowledgeable, but some of those guys ---- ie. the shadowroll is there so the horse doesn't see shadows (just this past week), and then he has the nerve to be condescending to the shows female cohost!

                          I much prefer TVG, former and current trainers as well as jockeys and handicappers. Better group on the whole, they always show the post parades (I'm not a bettor) and usually have something interesting to say. Too bad they appear to have lost the contract on many of the big tracks this past winter. I hope this changes soon.........

                          As far as the big networks.....well, they always find someone to be entertaining..........

                              Per the NTRA's weekly newsletter:

                              The complete, wire-to-wire running of the Dubai World Cup can be seen via same-day tape on "NTRA Racing to the Kentucky Derby" from 5:00-6:00 p.m. (ET) on ESPN2. The telecast originates from Gulstream Park and is highlighted by the 58th Florida Derby.
                              So that's one of the races at least.

                                Some of you may not know, but the racing is being shown live on ESPN360.com... and the best part, it's not the ESPN crew.

                                  Spoiler below......


























                                  .








                                  Honour Devil takes the UAE Derby in a canter, from his arch rival Royal Vintage, with the filly, Cocoa Beach back in 3rd. First 4 horses home were southern hemishpere bred.
                                  Would be great if Honour Devil came Stateside in the summmer. The next Invasor?

                                    Just an FYI-- you can't view the race on ESPN360.com if your ISP doesn't offer it. I hate you, Comcast.

                                    But, you can listen to the live broadcast here:

                                    http://www.arnonline.com/amgarn/dubai-eye/radio.html

                                    No video, but at least you can hear what's going on live! They just ran the Golden Shaheen.

                                      Sometimes I hate living in a place without broadband where online betting is illegal. Can't even justify satellite tv anymore.
