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!

    Rosie is almost guaranteed to win the title for the Fair Grounds Winter meet [Nov 22 - Mar 31].

    With less than 20-days left in the meet, Rosie Napravnik has just about wrapped up her third straight Fair Grounds riding title. Through Monday, Napravnik had a 35-win lead, 100-65, over second-place James Graham.

    Add to that March 12, 2013 - Octagon to Market Top Thoroughbred Racing Jockey Rosie Napravnik

    Octagon continues to set the standard for athlete marketing with the primary focus on helping athletes achieve their goals on and off their respective fields of play, from traditional endorsement deals to establishing content-driven platforms.

    Some of their clients
    - Michael Phelps, Olympic swimmer
    - Apolo Anton Ohno, Olympic Speed skater
    - Aly Raisman, Olympic Gymnast
    - Hannah Teter, Olympic snowboarder
    ... ETC

      From Twitter by Rosie - her having a trail ride (Mar 12, 2013) - She is on the grey. Nice to see her enjoying a ride while "off duty"

        Big props - although a bit of an expected victory - for Rosie to fly out to Santa Anita today (Mar 16th) to win the 76th running of the Grade 1 Santa Margarita Stakes with Joyful Victory for trainer Larry Jones and owner Rick Porter.

        She still paid an "ok" $4.20 for the win Joyful Victory is now a millionaire mare.

          San Diego Union Tribune 3-16-13: "Rosie Napravnik continues her winning ways at Santa Anita" - trainer Larry Jones

          “You can almost classify her as just ‘jockey,’ now,” said Jones following the Joyful Victory in the Santa Margarita before 13,865 fans. “You don’t have to put ‘woman’ on there anymore. She’s talented. And horses love to run for her. I’ve had some horses that are somewhat lazy horses. I didn’t think Rosie would fit them, but Rosie didn’t have a call so I put them on them and the horses weren’t lazy anymore. She just can communicate with them. And now that we are more personal friends and go riding and things like that when we’re not racing I’ve learned what a great horseperson she is. She’s been doing this since she was a baby. No, this girl is talented. Barring any injuries, and God bless her she’s been lucky to come back from the injuries she’s had, but if she can stay healthy, believe me, she’ll go down in the history book.”
          Additionally - as measured by wins (not mount earnings): Rosie (with 80-wins) is 1st in the nation and 4th by earnings (as of end of 3/17/13)

            Looks like she picked up another good mount at Gulfstream Park coming up:

            Napravnik could have a big day here on Florida Derby day. In addition to riding Shanghai Bobby in the main event, she will also have the call on Take Charge Indy, if he goes, in the Grade 3 Skip Away. Take Charge Indy had his first major work since finishing third in the Grade 1 Donn Handicap, breezing six furlongs in 1:14 at Palm Meadows on Sunday.

            “He’s also nominated to the New Orleans Handicap,” said trainer Pat Byrne, “but we’re leaning towards the Skip Away because it would be a lot easier to ship him 45 minutes to Gulfstream rather than all the way to New Orleans to face Graydar.

            “Another reason is we can get Rosie to ride him since we’ve already been told Johnny [Velazquez] is riding Cigar Street in the Skip Away for Bill Mott”

              Okay, come on and sing with me, "This girl is on fire".

              Well shucky-darn, I was going with Johnny V in the Skipaway but it looks like it will be Rosie and TCI instead.

                  Mission accomplished with four mounts Wed March 20th and going 1-2-0

                  Leading Fair Grounds jockey Rosie Napravnik hit her second major milestone in the eighth race on Wednesday. Napravnik rode Steve Asmussen trainee Ronda Michelle to a three-length win in an $10,000 maiden claiming race.

                  "It seems like just yesterday I was winning my first race at Pimlico, so I think it came a little quicker than I figured it might," Napravnik told the media following the race. "I'm just very thankful for each and every one of the wins and all of the people that helped me to achieve them."

                    Following her almost guaranteed riding title at Fair Grounds for the meet ending shortly, Rosie will "ride full-time at Keeneland, Churchill; Steve Bass her new agent"

                    The 25-year-old leads the nation in 2013 victories with 91 heading into Thursday’s racing, 13 more than second-place Juan Diaz. Her 14 stakes triumphs also rank on top, with Hall of Famer John Velazquez next at 12.

                      Look for Rosie to be featured in a CBS '60-Minutes' segment in the near future - as the NOLA headline reads:

                      Rosie Napravnik is New Orleans' next superstar

                      This week a CBS crew is in town to profile her for an upcoming edition of "60 Minutes."

                      "It's really exciting to think that '60 Minutes' wants to do a story about me," Napravnik said. "But it's also a little bit of a whirlwind right now. It's really amazing where I'm at in my career."

                            Tribune/B'More Sun May 5, 2013: "Agent Peter Carlisle has put Rosie Napravnik on the Phelps plan"

                            Earlier this year, Carlisle signed another client — at the suggestion of Morgan — and put her on the Phelps plan. He's already signed a deal for jockey Rosie Napravnik to endorse Snickers — an agreement proposed before Carlisle learned that the candy bar was named for a horse — and has another in the works that could be announced before Preakness.

                            The goal is the same: to make Napravnik known by the average sports fan and therefore elevate the popularity of her sport.


                            • Original Poster

                              Sounds like a hot to trot agent. I'm trying to visualize RN in a candy bar ad. She is a good candidate for fame. Great stats, attractive and has a touch of class. Dang, the girl is ahead of Johnny V, that is speaking volumes for her talent.

                                Positive for everyone! Napravnik to join Old Friends board of directors (5/15/13)

                                Popular jockey Rosie Napravnik has agreed to join the board of directors for the Old Friends Thoroughbred retirement group. The organization is based in Georgetown, Ky., with a satellite near Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

                                  Just read that Rosie is now on the board of Old Friends.

                                    While today in the Grade 1 Met Mile (a sensational race!) and 45th running of the Grade 1 $400,000 Ogden Phipps Handicap it wasn't Rosie's day (despite have very good mounts in each) at least she did convincingly win the Grade 1 $300k Acorn Stakes for fillies on Bob Baffert trained Midnight Lucky.

                                    Video replay from NYRA here (May 27, 2013)

                                    All the more satisfying is that she soundly defeated Kauai Katie (finished 3rd) a horse she was dumped from after finishing 4th in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies-G1.

                                      Bummer for Rosie - Shanghai Bobby makes his return to racing: post 3 in 6-horse field for Aljamin Stakes at 6 1-2 furlongs Friday (Sep 20th) at Belmont.

                                      Named rider? John Velazquez gets it. Whereas Rosie had all his prior starts.

                                        While I'm hoping Rosie has a bang up year, Johnnie V is my fave rider this year so I'm glad to see him get that horse.
