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!

    She is already atop the Fair Grounds leader board for the just started meet with a 36% win rate ... 28 mounts thus far going 10-5-4 ... that's 68% in the money.

    From NOLA

    Napravnik, fresh off a win in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita, moved her tack to the Fair Grounds Nov. 17 after taking a long-awaited honeymoon (she got married last year).

    "It’s just great to be back and I’ve had such a great day," she said at the end of the day. "I’m just glad to be home. This is probably my favorite racetrack."

      She has an amazing ability to find the winner's circle.

          And she sets a new record for 2012!

          Brisnet 1-1-13: "Napravnik tops Krone to establish new female jockey mark"

          Jockey Rosie Napravnik closed out a career-best season on December 31, securing the highest spot ever for a female jockey on the North American leader board in 2012.

          Finishing the year with $12,451,713 in purse earnings, with 193 wins, 191 seconds and 167 thirds from 1,200 starts, Napravnik finished eighth nationally among jockeys in the year-end standings. Hall of Fame jockey Julie Krone set the record in 1988 when she finished the year with a ninth-place finish. She finished ninth again in 1992 and the record stood for the past 20 years.
          From Julie Krone

          "It is pretty obvious that Rosie lays down the numbers," Krone said. "What fun it has been to watch her year unfold. She is in new territory -- being one of the top 10 jockeys in the U.S.A. My heart gets to racing at the thought of her winning the (Kentucky) Derby. I live vicariously through many of her racing moments, then the others, I just enjoy.

          "Her tactical savvy in a race is as good as they come. Her gift of the feel or touch for the Thoroughbred is remarkable. As a rider one of the best compliments I got in the 1980s was a valet that said, 'you look like a man on a horse.' This has been said of Rosie many times as well. Her talents are only second to her determination. I suspect this won't be her last visit to the top 10 list. She has all the qualities of a champion."

            Woo!!! She seems like a very focused rider. I'm impressed by her riding, she is up there with the best of the best male jockeys. Looking forward to the day she is #1.

              And on Jan 23, 2013 Rosie was given the Key to the City of New Orleans by the Mayor (picture included)

              New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu presented jockey Rosie Napravnik with a “Key to the City” in a ceremony held late Wednesday afternoon in the Mayor’s office at City Hall. Mayor Landrieu, on behalf of the city, also presented Napravnik with a proclamation officially recognizing her achievements.

              Napravnik is originally a native of New Jersey but has called New Orleans “the closest thing” she has to a home since purchasing a house with husband Joe Sharp, also pictured, in Mid-City in 2011. She currently leads the Fair Grounds jockey standings with 46 wins entering Thursday’s races.

                Said US-born jockey getting her coverage in .. gasp .. a foreign newspaper

                UK's The Guardian Jan 25, 2012: "'I had a dream of winning the Derby on Shanghai Bobby' - excerpt

                [Napravnik's home in] mid-city New Orleans house contains only a few items that betray her profession, and indeed the person.

                One is a portrait of Ruffian, America's ill-fated champion filly whose desire to win surpassed even the pain from catastrophic injury. The other, a picture entitled The Savage, is a black and white snapshot of the 1980 Tremont Stakes at Belmont Park in which, amid the fervor of a sustained stretch battle, Great Prospector reached over, neck sinews strained to snapping, to maul Golden Derby, the eventual winner.
                "People think I'm stuck up and unhappy," she says. "But it's not that I'm unhappy or not content. It really isn't. I had an agent at Delaware [Park racecourse] say: 'You could lose by a nose or win by 10 lengths and you look exactly the same walking back to the jocks room, showing no emotion at all.' It's hard to explain what I'm so focused about."
                Th article is quite lengthy (which is good!) and really gives folsk who haven't followed her a much better idea of the highs and lows she's suffered to get where she is. Injuries, learning experience, sacrifice.

                I find her unassuming. I was standing next to her at the fall Keeneland meet when she happened to be on the 'public' side of the saddling enclosure after a race where she was off the board and talking to some folks she knew. For all the success and exposure (more than many of male peers get with) she wasn't acting anything - if I wanted her autograph or photo it would've been fine. (Although respective of her conversing and not quite the time to interrupt. I didn't ask for those reasons.)

                I think she's good stuff, good for the game, focused and determined to succeed in racing. And perhaps more importantly not using the sport as a stepping stone to model, act, or become a trophy wife.

                  Despite the narrow loss aboard Shanghai Bobby in the $400k Holy Bull at Gulfstream in the afternoon of Saturday she clearly boarded a jet to get to Sam Houston later that night .... and worth the effort as she set a track record. [video in link]

                  Joyful Victory [with Rosie up] turned the tables on frequent rival Brushed by a Star, when she won the inaugural $400,000 Houston Ladies Classic over that one Saturday night at Sam Houston Race Park, and in the process set a track record.

                  The win was one of two stakes scores on the card for the trainer-jockey team of Larry Jones and Rosie Napravnik, who also took the $75,000 Champion Energy Services in course record time with Ikon Ike.

                    Rosie is good stuff Glitter, we gave her one of her first mounts here in Md. The first time her agent brought her to our barn I was super impressed by her maturity and the way she handled herself. We went out to the track together and worked horses and I just knew she had the talent to go far. So happy for her!

                      This is what I like about her, she is here for the race, not her ego.

                        And she even rides cross country over obstacles - up the bank she goes:

                        Image (credit Lynn C. Roberts) : Rosie aboard OTTB "Sugar"

                        And a tweet from Rosie (Thur Feb 7th) in regards to the photo circulating around.

                        Q: Did Rosie ever ride in a steeplechase for Jazz?

                        By the way as of the end of day 2/7/13 Rosie is currently 3rd in the US in the jock standings nationally with earnings @ $1,329,650. Frankly had she not been taken off Kauai Katie (for her 2013 season) she'd be just $8k shy of 1st place. Katie would've added $180k on that tally.

                          Do you know why she was taken off KK? Out by 8k is not much, I'm hoping she hits the 1st slot again. I wonder if there is any chance she could get a ride on a Derby mount.

                            Yesterday (Sat, Feb 9th) was Rosie's 25th birthday although while she continued her a-typical winning day (2 wins) her national jock standing (by earnings) dropped from 3rd to 5th with some bigger pursed races shifting to others.

                            As for why she was taken off KK (just my 1,000 mile view) but the 4th place finish in the Grade 1 Grey Goose Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies last fall did it. Kauai Katie otherwise is 5-0 in her career. I doubt it was a Pletcher decision but more so Stonestreet Stables making that call.

                            Well she has the mount on Shanghai Bobby who is on most people's top 10 list for the Derby already and he's tied for 1st place with Derby eligible points. I'm not sure if 1 1/4 mi is his distance so she could jump to another mount.

                            With an injured Ramon out of the picture for this year's Derby that opens the door for any talented rider. Also D. Wayne Lukas has a couple of horses in the top 10 with earned Derby points but each having Jon Court as their jockey. If they both make it to the Kentucky Derby that means Lukas would need another jockey.

                              In case folks though she might ride Tom Amoss trained Mylute (whom she has rode a significant number of horses at Fairgrounds) that is nixed with a run at Oaklawn Park. Grade 2 Risen Star Stakes - on Feb. 23

                              Rosie Napravnik, who rode [Mylute] to his latest victory, won't be on his back that day, however. Amoss said Napravnik will ride a yet-unnamed Todd Pletcher 3-year-old in the race, so he'll make a jockey change.

                              "We'll probably look for someone local," Amoss said.

                                  As folks likely saw Rosie took a distant 2nd in the Risen Star aboard Fear the Kitten who now has 6-Derby points.

                                  From her twitter account comes this picture back in April 1997

                                  That's Rosie aboard "Sweet Sensation" winning the Brandywine Point to Point in what I assume is the pony race.

                                    Vet cute picture, the other pony looks like it could do with a smaller rider.

                                    I totally spaced about SB, I haven't followed him so have no idea regarding his distance abilities.

                                      She's back in 3rd place, nationally, in the jock standings as of 2-24-13 after a killer Saturday at the Fair Grounds. Won the Mineshaft Handicap (Grade 3) and Rachel Alexandra Stakes (Grade 3) and took 3rd in both the Fair Grounds Handicap (Grade 3) and Risen Star Stakes (Grade 2) ... that adds some good bank to her record
