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.

  • Palomino filly going through the Jan Keeneland Sale ...

    Splash of Vanilla is going in the January sales.

    Palomino Filly in Keeneland Sale
    Email Print RSS ShareThisby Deirdre B. Biles
    Date Posted: December 11, 2008
    Last Updated: December 11, 2008


    Splash of Vanilla, a filly by Ballado Chieftan, probably will attract plenty of attention at the upcoming Keeneland January horses of all ages sale in Lexington because of her golden color. She is registered as a palomino.

    It will be the first time Keeneland has offered a palomino Thoroughbred in Director of Sales Geoffrey Russell’s memory.

    “I was surprised,” Russell said. “I didn’t know that The Jockey Club registered Thoroughbreds as palominos, but they obviously do. It will add a little bit of an extra twist to the sale like it does when we sell white horses.”

    Produced by the Guaranteed Gold mare Maid of Gold TB, who is also registered with The Jockey Club as a palomino, Splash of Vanilla is from the family of stakes winner Knight’s Turn. Her consignor is Triple B Stables. The filly was bred in Minnesota by Thomas Bentley and Kevin E. Lay.

    Splash of Vanilla, who will be 2-years-old when she is offered next year at Keeneland, is one of 31 horses in the foal crop of 2007 that is registered as a palomino, according to The Jockey Club.
    Will be interesting to see what she goes for ...

    You gotta love the line at the end of her page... "racing or broodmare prospect". At least they have a sense of humour.

      I saw a palomino TB galloping on the track one day at Penn National about ten years ago. I didn't even know there was such a thing until I saw it for myself. Not sure if the horse ever ran or not.

        I don't think this filly is connected with Norsire Farm, but they breed TBs for color (rather than speed).

                That's actually just the way they do it with females age 2 and over unless they are already pregnant or proven not to be able to be pregnant (spayed, etc) or are not able to be raced.

                If they're not able to be raced, it'll read simply: broodmare prospect. If they're being sold as in-foal broodmares, it'll read: Mated to xx (his pedigree) on y date. Believed to be pregnant. If she hasn't been bred, it'll read: Not mated. If she hasn't checked in foal, it'll read Mated to XX (his pedigree), last service y date. Believed to be not pregnant.

                  I'm aware of that. It does make one chuckle though to see those words connected to a horse that is not really bred to be a racehorse, the bottom side is several generations of colour breeding.
                  The damsire never raced and has never sired a foal that left a starting gate.
                  The damsire's sire in turn also never sired a horse that raced.
                  The 2nd damsire had a whopping 9 starters in his whole career as a sire (20 odd years?).
                  You have to go back to the 4th dam to find any tenuous connection to black type.

                  The sire himself is a genuine race sire, but in his, albeit young, career he doesn't have figures that would evoke much interest among buyers. The couple of offspring that he has had that went through sales averaged $1500.

                  Let's face it, if this filly was chestnut, bay, brown, grey etc, she would have little value as either a racehorse or racing broodmare prospect, and would unlikely be run through the ring at Keeneland. It's all about the colour of the coat.

                      I don't think anyone mentioned this filly being connected with Norsire Farm at all and we DON'T breed TBs for "just" color.

                      Zillionair at the moment is 15th in the nation for leading hunter sires and not all the points are in yet for the year.

                      http://www.usef.org/_IFrames/pointsA...8&section=1902

                      Gold Tycoon is also 12th in Zone 2.

                      I'm listed as 13th in the nation as a breeder.

                      But to answer the question of racing, we do have one client who bred her mare twice to Zillionair and is planning on racing her two...one is a colt and one is filly. There is also one that will be starting in Jan. 2009 that I bred and sold...can't wait to see how he does.

                      Here are a few photos of Gifted Gold the filly in KY.

                      It will be interesting to see how this filly does at Keenland.

                      I will let you know how the one that is staring in Jan. 2009 does once he starts racing.

                      Happy Holidays to everyone!!!

                        There is currently a palomino in training here at Mountaineer but I have not been impressed with him as a racehorse. When I have seen him gallop he definitely goes like a "log wagon".... but more power to his connections for trying to get an actual WIN/race record with one of these pally TBs.

                        It will be interesting to see what the filly brings at Keeneland.

                            Jessi P.... The pally at Mountaineer has just been given the go ahead from the vet that his joints are finally closed and they have just started to condition him lightly. He's a late baby (end of May) but is a 16.2 (and still growing!) 2 year old so they're taking it slowly with him until he grows into his body a bit. They just started him on the track mid/end November, in all the ice and crap that Mountaineer gets, so hopefully he'll look a bit less like a "log wagon" and more like a racehorse when the conditions are better and he has some muscle on him. They're thrilled with his work ethic and hope he has some speed behind the good attitude. I'm just pleased that they're taking the time and care starting this 'large' kid..... who knew he'd end up so friggin big, his dam is 15.3?
                            It's fun watching him out there though.

                              Glad to see you on this thread! I sure didn't mean to suggest that you breed "just" for color - only that speed isn't your primary concern. Conformation, soundness, and athletic ability are not compromised by good breeding for color, and your breeding program testifies to that.

                                grits Thank you so much for the lovely comments! Yes we don't primarily breed for the race track...more for an all around sporthorses with excellent conformation, soundness, athletic ability, heart of gold temperment, and a pretty head doesn't hurt with the extra bonce of color for the sweet icing on the cake!!!

                                Specialeffects seems you know this colt/gelding very well...does IT have a name? I think it would be very cool for a palomino to "win" a race on the track someday and maybe with 4 currently at it..one of the 4 will make it soon!!! I know the two in KY are slated to run and so is the one I bred so 3 from my program that I currently know about.

                                  No clue, I dont believe he has run yet. I see him once or twice a week on the track.

                                  Edited to add that I just now read your post SE and it makes sense - being a young horse and just getting legged up. What is his breeding, and who is training him?

                                    SE regarding the winter conditions at Mnr.... I have a 2 yo W Va bred I would just LOVE to keep in training to try to run early as a 3 yo, but we have just made the decision (yesterday) to lay him up and bring him back in late Feb/early March because with the track conditions it's impossible to get any sort of consistent training into them. Some mornings, usually after the jocks have refused to ride the night before, the track is closed for training while they work the track to see if they can get it decent for that night's racing. All in all, its a tough time of the year to be training young horses.

                                      Jessi P.... yeah I had a long talk with one of his owners last night - almost 3 hours is long isn't it - and they have decided to send some of the kiddies down to Florida so they don't miss training time over the next 2 or 3 months. The guy I was talking to, who doubles as his trainer as well, said that he'd just be sick if any of them got injured because they hit a lump if ice incorrectly and ended up being laid up for weeks or months because of it. So one gelding, the pally and two yearling fillies are going to be living the life I'd like right around now! As I said, I adore these guys and the fabulous care and consideration they give to the well being of their horses. Bad part though, is I'm pretty much not going to be able to visit for the day or weekends. Scooting back and forth between ON and PA and/or WV is one thing but this would be kind of pushing it!

                                      The pally is aka Beyond Blonde - Guaranteed Gold x Special Lady. His trainer is Jim Farris and he's owned by TJ Squared Stables. He was not bred for racing but the trainer liked his type and was also very impressed by what he saw in both the sire and dam, so he was willing to take a chance on him. I just hope he rewards their time and their faith in him, with a respectable effort. That what we all wish... isn't it?
