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!

Have the JC papers but they're not signed

  • Have the JC papers but they're not signed

    I brought home an OTTB mare on Monday. I'm really excited about her as a sport horse prospect. This is my first OTTB that came with any sort of history. My previous TBs were all of unknown history, and being geldings, we never worried about who they might be.

    The seller sent this mare's registration papers with her but the transfer section is not signed. Is this going to present any sort of problem for me in the future if I were to resell her or if someone wanted to do anything TB related (breeding, etc) with her? My plans for her are strictly sport horse oriented, planning on presenting her at warmblood studbook approvals next year, etc, but I don't know if I'm even asking the right questions....

    For instance with every other registered horse that I've ever bought or sold, the registry wanted the papers submitted for a transfer of ownership. Does the JC record owners, or is that strictly only of interest while the horse is breeding or showing up at the race track?

    Super excited about my new girl, but a little befuddled by the actual registry.

    Here she is in her old life

    The only thing you can't do is race her as the papers would need to be signed for that. You are good to go.

        You can also do a simple online transfer of ownership through the Jockey Club. You'll have to sign up and create an account, then once you're logged in the registry, look for the link Transfer of Ownership. Here's the page you will be looking for:

        https://www.registry.jockeyclub.com/...TOKEN=57074285

        It's very easy to do and completely free.

          This is not necessarily true. The transfer section on the back of the registration certificate states the following; Transfers of ownership MAY BE recorded below. It does not state required, only “May Be”, nor does the signature need to be witnessed or notarized. I have found this section is mainly used by the racing secretary when a horse has been claimed and the papers and ownership is transferred by the racing office. If a horse has been sold at auction the auction company will transfer and sign. I have sold horses without signing this section because the papers were sent directly from the racing office and or trainer to the new owner. I have also bought horses without this section being signed over to me and have never had any problems racing them. The most important document to have when buying or selling a horse is a well written Sale and Purchase Agreement and a Bill of Sale

            Thanks so much! This was so simple.

            The seller never said that I could not race her, and indicated that if she did not sell, she would race her again next year. That said, she wasn't a very successful race horse and I got her for a sport horse and although I've only had her in the barn a week, I'm more and more impressed with her every day.

                Which was my point. If she wanted to race the horse, someone would have to sign that. Could be the racing secretary or someone in the HPBA but the change would have to be noted on the papers. Most places require a bill of sale to transfer ownership in the program and some places even have their owner transfer forms that need to be notarized for the transfer to take place unless the horse was claimed.

                  It wasn't exactly sport horse pedigree that would have particularly made me jump up and down - there are things I really like, but there are also elements that I could just as soon leave. That said, when I saw her, I knew I had to bring her home with me.

                    If you transfer ownership on line...NO ONE will care what is on the papers. If it makes you feel better...sign the previous owner's name and the date you bought her and go on with it. JC does not do transfers like all the other breed associations. Enjoy your new horse!

                      The JC really isn't overly concerned about everyone signing the papers. They're more touchy about altering the win record on the last page. As mentioned it's easy to do on line, too (I'm Lucky's registered owner, not that I'd race him as I have no desire to spend money to watch him get his butt kicked at Mount Pleasant Meadows-he's much too good at being retired. Besides, even I could afford to claim a horse there if I just wanted to race something.)

                        JWB, she sure looks the part! Congratulations and good luck with her. I love to see an OTTB go on to what sounds like an excellent home.

                          Seriously? Caro tail male makes ME jump up and down (it's a shame her sire is dead) and the Damascus is also lovely. You've also got a BOATLOAD of Teddy and Blue Larkspur there, which is very nice. It's a bit more Raise a Native and Mr P than one would really look for, but there are really plenty of positive elements there...

                            Loved the Caro, and yes, it was the Mr. P and Raise a Native that I was a bit 'meh about. Didn't know about the other stuff to love so thanks for the insight! (this was my first OTTB) Going on the horse in front of me, I was smitten! She has a full sister racing up north somewhere and I just hope she ends up in a good sport horse program before the racing breaks her down - also not a superstar on the track, but running just the same.
