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!

  • Tiznow retrospective: I want one!

    A lovely tribute to Tiznow on the Blood-Horse BC website.

    http://www.bloodhorse.com/Videos/Vid...84496CD8AB.htm

    I love how he stamps his offspring--all the ones I've seen look so much like him. I want one! Anyone seen any on Canter or any of the other tb placement websites? Or are they too fancy to end up there?

    I met Tiznow in person hes gorgeous. I heard a few years ago his foals wern't really doing all that great on the track and there was concern about him not lasting at WinStar because of it. Im sure you could find one somewheres.

      I was on a Cees Tizzy (sire of Tiznow) mare the other day, and a friend of mine was in love. He said she could be his hunter/jumper... I laughed as she will be a broodmare.. black type and several hundred thousand in earnings... but I bet she's make a lovely show horse. She does come from a great mare line though and will race (with any luck) till she's at least 7. Her mom won a Gr 3 as a 7 year old and it is a late developing family! We have a 3,4,5 year old full and 1/2 siblings. The colt by Street Cry is something else. The other filly has earned $500,000+
      But the Cees Tizzy's and Tiznow blood have a soft spot in my hear! definitely has a soft spot in my heart!

        His cheapest yearling at KEESEP went for $7,000.

        He's got 45 offspring catalogued for KEENOV; most of them are weanlings but there are several of his daughters selling as broodmares/broodmare prospects. They will probably go cheap, especially in this market. www.keeneland.com

        He should also have lots in the January sale.

          I think he's pretty hot right now. I doubt they will go too cheap.

            Yeah, 6 Tiznows in the Breeders Cup pre-entries alone... I doubt he'll cut it at WinStar.

              Ditto.


              But, farmgirl isn't wrong either. I had a school-sponsored farm tour at WSF ('07) and also fell in love with Tiznow. But the manager did not seem very high on him, compared to the other stallions. I got the impression that Tiznow was "of some concern" at that time. Not anymore!! His kids are rockets this year! And selling like crazy.

                At the moment, Tiznow is #3 on the 2008 General Sires List with almost $8,000,000 in earnings for the year: 11 stakes winners, 6 graded stakes winners, 4 G1 winners. There are few stallions hotter at the moment. His 2008 stud fee was $30,000. That's expected to rise to at least $75,000 for 2009.

                The Tiznows tend to be big, gorgeous, athletic horses. But I don't think you'll find many of them going cheap.

                  Your best bet is one who didn't cut it at the track. A gelding who's dropped down to lower tier tracks OR a filly who was retired without much of a race record. They weren't terribly discriminating about the mares he bred, but he DID breed a lot of mares.

                  At Keeneland November, these two probably won't go for a lot.

                    Your idea of what isn't "a lot" must be very different from mine.

                      I have a good friend of mine who is a trainer at Churchill offer to give me one (a gelding) free. I had always admired him as he was very good looking and had a nice way of going. He was just looking for a good home for him and he really didn't have anything wrong with him....at the time-I really couldn't take another one so I passed. If I hear of another one though....I will keep you in mind!

                        Of course, I'm just joking with you.

                        i got a private tour of just about any farm that i chose to go to, thanks to a very special special person who does work at all of the farms for the most part, in the area down there. She knew her thoroughbreds and just about everything happening with them.

                        She said while we where walking through the property of Winstar (this is about 3yrs ago now) that his offspring wern't doing well and where failing to impress the team at Winstar and he probably wouldnt be offered there the following year.

                        I know im not wrong. i was talking with someone who directly worked with these farms. He's quite the handsome fellow-along with every other thoroughbred stallion in the barn. i would love to see some of his foals.

                          Perhaps this was before the Breeder's Cup--I think Folklore was from his first crop (Juvenile Fillies winner).

                            Well actually you are wrong, or at least your friend was--because Tiznow was offered at stud at WinStar the following year, and every year since. He did go through a somewhat quiet period while his 2nd and 3rd crops were beginning to race, but now he's come roaring back with a vengeance and is one of the hottest stallions around.

                            I work with all the big farms too. And we currently have a mare in foal to Tiznow. So my info is pretty accurate.

                              I recently helped place a Tiznow son for free also. I do think these are exceptions however. This colt had a bad breathing problem and had already had surgery, which failed. He is big and pretty also!
