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.

  • Lost Jockey Club Papers.

    I just acquired an absolutely amazing OTTB.
    His registered named is No Halo On Me. Born in 2005.

    He was bought off a slaughter truck, basically. So, he did not come with his papers.
    Besides refiling through JC, is there any way to track down barns, trainers, owners, ect to see if I can get his original papers.

    He's a beautiful, handsome 17.2 hand light bay, with a crooked start, strip and snip. He has a pastern and a sock on the back, and an osselet and bad scarring on his front legs. He also has a white scar behind his ear were it was ripped off during training...

    Anyways..... I just am looking for his papers before I refile!!

    Thank you for all your help.

    Also, I believe he is NY bred, and raced.

    Your best bet is to contact Marcus Vitali and if theyre still on file with Suffolk, Paul Buckley would have to sign them over since hes the last owner of record, unless it was done so after your horse left their hands and assuming theres some sort of paper trail that u can provide

      You need to track down the last owner as listed by Langfuhr. If they don't have the papers, you might have to follow the ownership trail until you find them. The only way to get papers reissued is to have the last owner write a signed statement about how the papers became lost. If they don't want to give you the papers or won't sign a statement for you then you're SOL. You have a gelding, so are papers really necessary?

        Yes hes a NY bred...amazingly, he won his last race out! Paul Buckley was the owner at the time.

        You might try contacting Paul privately, simply asking and see what kind of response you get. Dealing with MV isnt always the easiest thing. As mentioned, hes a gelding.

        You can print his race record, pedigree and frame those!~

        I have a horse with Halo pedigree (grandsire dam side) with (slew as grand on sire side) and hes the sweetest horse Ive ever owned; soounds like yours --- lucky us, huh?

        Your horse had 5 wins out of 42, so if you go through his race record to find whioch track photographer, maybe you can get a win picture.

                One reason to need papers: to register a horse with the USDF in order to qualify for breed awards and to promote OTTBs.

                  Absolutely right ptownevet!~
                  I do not purchase ANY retiring TB unless there are papers with no restrictions -- for just that reason -- my market usually does show or event and they are necessary in those cases. Many go on to race P-t-P's too.

                  Contact for PB should be on file at Suffolk (where he held an owners license). Call them and simply ask for contact info for PB, phone and address/email if they have it -- you dont need to explain why.
                  Phone: (617) 567-3900 >ask for the Licensing Office

                  No Halo, if I recall right, your horse raced last July, so papers are most likely still with Horse ID at Suffolk but it will require (owner?) trainer to secure them. (you absolutly cannot).

                      Hi everyone.
                      So I finally had a few free minutes and called Suffolk. The licensing office wouldn't give me Paul's number, but they took mine And said they would call him and relay the message (somehow I don't think he'll call)
                      Then I talked to the racing office, and they said they don't have papers on file for horses last year.
                      Kinda at a loss.
                      Should I try calling JC? I read they are a pain to talk to sometimes.

                      What a joke.. can't people just sell horses with their papers?!

                      Anymore ideas would be great! Thank you.

                        The JC isn't going to do anything for you-- if the last owner of record does not want to give you the papers, there is nothing you can do. I personally do not give papers on horses I retire and rehome, in order to ensure they never race again-- no papers, no race-- that simple.

                          People like myself, have no intentions on racing said horse... but want the papers for said horse.
                          Its kinda of irritating that people think they hold a horses papers even when they aren't owners anymore.

                            It's just the way it is. They don't HAVE to give up the papers if they don't want to. I knew of a trainer who didn't want to give them up on an older gelding. The buyer was a hunter show person who promised they had no intentions of ever racing that horse. A year or so later he showed up, back on the track under a new owner and broke down. THIS is why some trainers don't give up papers. If nothing else, if/when you reach the last trainer, ask for a COPY of the papers. At least then you can prove pedigree on him for shows.

                              No Halo, did I read your original post correctly? Is your horse missing an EAR from a training accident?

                              Oh man. That must have hurt.

                                Well, strictly speaking, it is printed on JC foal papers that "Certificate is to be preserved and transferred to purchaser gratis is this horse is sold." If one wanted to make a stink with them, the papers go with the horse, the owner can't retain them or charge extra for them.

                                Once they're lost or the trainer's being a jerk, though, you are kind of SOL. But for a gelding it is a bit beside the point. (Needing them for USDF is an issue with them, not the JC. What if it's a horse who isn't registered anywhere? Do they not get any points? Are you supposed to make up your own Walkarabaloosainto Warmblood registry (membership = 1) for them?)

                                  P-t-P agree yes

                                  Their tattoo is proof and they do not need JC papers to event or H/J...sold close to 100 and maybe 20 had papers...neither do you need for USEF or USEA ID (only for Breed awards) they have a Tat you can get Sire Dam and race information.
                                  You do need a bill of sale or proof of ownership.

                                  Stallions yes, Broodmares for breeding Geldings no way.

                                  I don't ask or want papers if they hand them over fine...for fillies yeah I prefer but I don't promote selling breeding stock.

                                    Hr. It was glued back on, I guess. He's got a nasty white scar on the backside of his ear. He had a hard life on the track. Lots of scarring and injuries.

                                      Perhaps all the more reason to insure the horse does not end up back at the races by withholding the papers. Not too long ago there was a high profile case where a stallion was sold with a contract stating he was never to be raced. The contract was signed by both parties but the buyer had a change of heart and next thing you know the horse was back at the races. I bet the sellers wished they had withheld those papers.

                                      And no way they glued his ear on.

                                        I'm not hear to DEBATE what injuries my horse went through.
                                        and truthfully I didn't ask for what your opinion is on his ear.

                                        And I am not the one who put him on a slaughter truck.
                                        I swear I stated he doesn't have papers because he came off a meat truck.

                                        So, back to my ORIGINAL post.
                                        I'm looking for information on how to get ahold of MV or PB.
                                        The ideas given were tried, without success.

                                        If you have nothing nice to say, then don't say anything at all!
