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!

  • Pants on Fire returns to racing in Jersey (Sat Jun 18th)

    The worst case of being sidelined well into the Summer luckily did not occur. Rosie returns aboard the Kelly Breen trained runner at Monmouth this weekend.

    Grade 3, $200,000 Pegasus Stakes - Race 10 @ 5:28 PM EST. TVG will air the race live.

    Pants On Fire figures to have company out front in Pegasus Stakes

    Pants On Fire faces five opponents in a return to action sooner than expected in the 1 1/16-mile Pegasus.

    Pants On Fire was well positioned for most of the run at Churchill Downs and was still in the mix rounding the final turn. He faded in the lane, running ninth while bleeding, despite running on Lasix.

    “He bled a lot,” Breen said.

    It looked like Pants On Fire would be sidelined until later this summer. But back at hisMonmouth home base, Pants On Fire came around quickly. So fast, that he is able to make this race.

    Pants On Fire, with Rosie Napravnik aboard, figures to fire right into the pace. So should Rush Now, the dominant pacesetting winner of the Spend a Buck Stakes, the Pegasus prep; Harlan’s Hello who was under consideration for the Belmont Stakes by owner-trainer Doodnauth Shivmangal; and Turbo Compressor, a first-level winner by 13 1/2 lengths here on the opening weekend.

    The abundance of speed could set the table for trainer Justin Sallusto to scoop up another Grade 3 win with a closer.

    For those who missed his 'comeback' effort:

    Video: race replay (here) Grade 3, $195,000 Pegasus Stakes held Sat June 18, 2011 at Monmouth Park.

    It sets him up quite nicely for a solid run at the Haskell Invitational July 31st.

      And maybe no Rosie-Pants combo for the $1M Haskell Invitational due to injury

      July 6, 2011 "Napravnik hurt in spill at DelPark"

      Jockey Rosie Napravnik was taken to a local hospital and was being evaluated for a possible broken left arm after being involved in a spill during the running of Wednesday's eighth race at Delaware Park, according to her agent.

      "She's in the hospital," Mark Mace said. "It's her left arm. It may be broken, it may not be."

      Napravnik, 23, was aboard Naseeb, the 5-2 second choice in a five-furlong turf race, when that 5-year-old mare broke down about a quarter-mile into the race. Napravnik was unseated and hit the firm turf course hard. Naseeb suffered a broken bone between her shoulder and elbow, according to her trainer, Dale Capuano, and was euthanized.

      Napravnik had won two races on Wednesday's program - including the race immediately preceding the spill - giving her a meet-leading 36 victories from 146 mounts. Earlier this year, Napravnik became the first female jockey to win the Fair Grounds riding title.
      Pants On Fire, with Napravnik up, ... was being pointed to the $1 million Haskell Invitational at Monmouth on July 31.

          The last update from Wed eve July 6, 2011 - a broken left wrist:

          Napravnik was admitted to Christiana Hospital near the track and was scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday morning, Mace said.

          "She’ll be out for a while," said Mace, who didn’t want to speculate on exactly how long.

            Worth pointing out as it seems to be lost if not scarcely promoted ....

            July 31, 2011 the $1M Grade 1 Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park (NJ)

              The DRF actually retracted/corrected their story - it was not the wrist but her arm which was broken.

              That said the outlook of being off the shelf is sadly looking to be all summer.

              BloodHorse - July 9, 2011 - Napravnik Has Second Surgery on Broken Arm

              Jockey Rosie Napravnik had to undergo a second surgery July 8 on her broken left arm, according to her publicist Kelly Wietsma of Equisponse. Napravnik broke her arm during a spill July 6 at Delaware Park.

              “The original surgery was very complicated in that a plate that was put in to repair a break she sustained four years ago had to be removed and replaced with a larger plate,” reported Wietsma on Facebook. “It was a very difficult procedure and as a result there was a great deal of swelling, which caused numbness and tingling in her fingers.”

              The second surgery reportedly lasted three hours. Doctors used a vacuum drainage tube to help alleviate fluids and reduce swelling. Napravnik, 23, is at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Del.

              “Although she’s in quite a bit of pain she is feeling relief from the surgery and she’s resting comfortably,” Wietsma said. Napravnik’s recovery time has been estimated at two to three months.

                Was so sorry to hear about this. Was hoping she might show up at Saratoga. Bet she is fit to be tied! Hope she has a speedy recovery and we see her soon. She is one tough cookie, and a great rider.

                  She is now having a third surgery... but making wedding plans!
