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!

        WOW! What a a day! Had tickets, but never parked my butt since we were on the rail of the saddling paddock all day. And then went to the Zenyatta after-party.

          I just wished they would publish the number of horses who were found to have bled upon post race endoscopy. I sure won't be betting any juvenile races and won't bet any of them next year because they just aren't formful.

            I can't believe Zagora went off at 9-1. I would have been betting her up, down, and sideways at those odds.

                Ouch - attendance was an anemic 34,619. Come on, folks, Del Mar gets 45k+ on a WED opening day. Keeneland's delivered that in their tiny facility, Saratoga does that with just a couple graded races on the card ...

                Agreed that anybody letting a Chad Brown horse in a graded race go off at 9-1 is like buying a guaranteed lottery ticket

                  Just here to report on Questing's eye as well. FB page here from HRTV with a picture, assuming it's open to the public. Expected to be fine. What terrible timing!

                    Agree GG. Believe this year's BC is seen as being anemic by several. No solid coverage on NBC itself, just NBCsport?!?

                    Suppose it's because all the stars from the classic races have come and gone. But after watching yesterday's races, there are certainly quality, exciting races and horses to see. Plenty of stories. Was going to try to clean during yesterday's card, and was glued to my set. Paying for it now while I try to do it all in 2 hours!

                        Pre-BC races (1-2-3) are on HRTV live. I believe they then show them on a delayed based afterwards.

                        NBC Sports Channel (which used to be long ago OLN then Versus) will carry the racing live for the afternoon [3-8pm ET] then it switches for the Classic to their flagship channel "NBC" [8-9pm ET].

                        An aside ... I was watching HRTV this morning and they had Jimmy "The Hat" being interviewed for his picks by Michelle Yu. When did Michelle switch from being on TVG to HRTV?

                        The attendance on Friday likely is curtailed significant by the actual cost of the ticket. There is a point where they should re-look at the entry fee and decide its better to have "the masses" in the seats and at the windows. As opposed to a fraction of the audience and kept as an elite event. I've been to the BC when it was at Arlington Park and it was utterly packed to the gills, then again it was a single day event back then.

                          Should be NBC. Certainly TVG has delayed coverage of the actual races as well.
                          Again, here is a link to online-streaming of the races:

                            Today - anyone taking a bet against Shanghai Bobby to win the JV? I know Bob's got a local shooter in there and its hard to ship and win at "his house" but Shanghai looks damn good.

                                  Mark Casse says Spring in the Air bled badly during the race -- and, boy, is he on the warpath. He is, of course, a strong proponent of race-day salix.

                                  “Before I was disappointed with the Breeders’ Cup,” he said. “Now I’m just down-right mad. I am furious.”

                                  Casse said owner John Oxley was so upset that they considered – but did not – withdrawing Dynamic Sky from Saturday’s Juvenile.

                                  Casse said Spring in the Air, who went off at odds slightly under 6-1, was traveling well when she acted like she was going to bolt midway through the far turn. He said jockey Patrick Husbands reported that when he got the filly down to a jog pulling up after the race, she started coughing.

                                  “She coughed the entire way back to the barn,” Casse said. “She just constantly, constantly coughed. We called the vet. The vet scoped her and the vet said she bled a 3 out of (a scale of) 5. She put her head down and blood came out of her right nostril. Still this morning she is still coughing.

                                  “I mean, is that right? I’ve got to tell you, Mr. Oxley is so upset about it he said he would never, ever run another 2-year-old without Lasix in the Breeders’ Cup. You just don’t know. This could be the end of her career, which is just absolutely ridiculous. We’ve got all these smart guys (running racing). Let them come back to the barn some time and watch a horse that bleeds cool out.”

                                    Breeders Cup coverage is on NBCSports Channel at 3:30. Then on NBC, at 8pm for the classic.

                                      Looking forward to Excelebration running. He's out of a mare called Sun Shower. We bought the first foal out of SS as a yearling for €2500. His name is Mull Of Killough. He won a Group 3 a few weeks ago and won a listed race at Newmarket today. We had the opportunity to buy the mare at the sales but decided against it (of course we did) due to the economic climate. Excelebration was a foal at the time. Mare went for €6200 and now lives in India.

                                      Probably a good thing for the mare as if we had owned something that good she probably would have met a horrible fate!
