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!

    Anyone going?? Who are you betting for? I won tickets and gave them to my in-laws.

    We'll be there with a BIG group from Seattle. Wearing our Emerald Downs Fabulous Friday shirts on Friday and rooting on Class Included, the local horse.

            I am rooting for Fort Larned in the Classic. I have similarly-bred weanling filly by E Dubai, out of Sweep Up, who is a Broad Brush granddaughter and from a good line of race mares! I'm a sporthorse breeder, but hoping to move the little one to a racing home!

                    Probably have to skip it because of visiting family. Maybe I'll have a party and barbeque and we can all watch it together.

                    Oh, I hope Richard's Kid wins! After watching Game On Dude trounce him a couple of times, I have my doubts... But if Garret Gomez can take him around the outside I think he'll close better. There are sure some nice horses in that race.

                    My second choice is Fort Larned. Love those Broad Brush horses.

                    Dreamswept, if you get to visit the barns, give RK a pat for me, okay?

                      I may or may not have made a Zenyatta-themed shirt, to be accompanied by a headpiece my sister is supposed to be making for me.

                        I do too!! He really deserves a win, he's been coming so close the last few times. The barn's been working him on the inside a little to get him to settle there if that's the way the break goes. Last work, he was in company with Cinco de Mario and he passed him up with ears forward. Just gotta cross our fingers and chant "Ricardo, c'mon Ricardo!"

                        Don't think we'll be back at the barns till Sunday. Friday and Saturday are probably gonna be a madhouse. But I did go and see the horses when we went to the CalCup a few weeks ago and took pictures and gave horse love. Ricardo is such a lovebug. He got lots of kisses on the nose. He's got a very gentlemanly personality. But if I can visit Sunday, I'll be sure to do that for ya.

                            In other news, the East Coast based horses who still haven't left New York for California yet might find things a bit touch-and-go with Hurricane Sandy trying to bog 'em down at Big Sandy.

                              So, is Ricardo his barn name?

                              I hope his new owners promote him a little. He needs a little help because he doesn't have that flashy charisma that others have. He doesn't look flashy because he's a solid bay, he doesn't act flashy in public because he has a catlike, business-like walk and doesn't misbehave or do any aerials in the paddock, and his past owners haven't promoted or advertised him, at least not that I could tell. The only thing exciting about him is his style of running, and when he wins, it is always exciting.

                              The more I hear about him, the more he seems like the ideal racehorse. He behaves well, he stays sound, he tries hard, and he earns a lot of money.

                                This would've been the perfect year for Say Florida Sandy to have run

                                As of Friday, there were 21 Breeders’ Cup horses based at Belmont Park, though one, Upgrade, was scheduled to ship via FedEx Saturday. The remaining 20 were booked to leave on Tex Sutton flights from MacArthur Airport in Islip, N.Y
                                Tex Sutton cited they could move the pick-up from LI to slightly Upstate with Newburgh Airport. Worse case I'd think they could haul up to Albany and have even less impact from the rains/winds.

                                  Breeders' Cup Releases Free iPhone and iPad App for 2012 World Championships

                                  The Official 2012 Breeders’ Cup app will allow iPhone and iPad users to watch all 15 Breeders’ Cup World Championship races live and for free, as the world’s top Thoroughbreds compete for more than $25 million in purses. New this year, a live radio stream of all races will be available in the app, courtesy of Horse Racing Radio Network (HRRN).

                                  The app is now available for download in the iTunes App Store or by visiting
                                  www.BreedersCup.com/App
                                  They have a youtube page for the BC Championships

                                  http://www.youtube.com/bcworldchampionships

                                  NBC Sports BC page for preview segments and lead up coverage

                                  All that said, I cannot find mention of NBC streaming video on-line to computers (vs. the above for iphones) whereas last year ABC/ESPN did allow for free-on line video if you were a Comcast customer (for example) and able to get onto their ESPN360.

                                    Lotsa people call him that around the barn. I don't know if it's officially his barn name, but it seems to be an apt nickname.

                                      At the very least, I can probably watch the races after they've run, on BloodHorse.com

                                        The plane carrying Royal Delta and the rest of Mott's runners left very early Tuesday, and I just saw something about it landing here in CA. Pletcher's horses are supposed to leave tomorrow... might be delayed.
