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!

Vaders Appeal DENIED!

  • Vaders Appeal DENIED!

    Get a load of this... the leading trainer at Philadelphia Park- Jayne Vaders- has her appeal for revocation of her license for drug postitives DENIED by the Court of Pennsylvania!! I wonder if Philly Park will actually remove her?

    http://www.pacourts.us/OpPosting/Cwe...D08_1-9-09.pdf

    There is a part in the court document that gets me though. It's from s Steward stating.."Even though the regulation calls for revocation after two positives, the Stewards did not revoke Vaders license until she had accumulated seven positive test results. The testifying Steward defended their action stating they wanted to be fair to Vaders and that if they revoked every trainer’s license after two positives,
    there would 25% less trainers licensed by the Commission.

    Amazing--huh??? Basically he admitted that 25/100 trainers are cheating and getting away with it!!

    A positive test doesn't necessarily mean a trainer is trying to cheat. Accidents happen more than you might think - really!

        I'll give you that mistakes do happen, but most trainers I know have been in the business for years and have never had any sort of positive! But if the infractions happen multiple times for the same substance- I find that hard to believe it was a mistake!

          Yea, after 7 times mistake isn't a very good excuse.

            The other day, Vaders had a horse in from Golden Gate that ran long with absoultely no speed form and the form was kind of dull. The horse ran a sprint race at the PHA and ran his eyeballs out as if he was a speed demon. Amazing.

            I'm sure she can file another appeal. She does cheat, but there are two others at Philly who are worse. Their initials are S.L. & R.P.

                Thanks for contributing 2 posts during the last six months, one of which is a complaint. You are an asset to the COTH forum.

                      Hey there...cry baby??? I don't think so- you just are expressing your observations- I don't know why someone would get their panty in a wad over that?

                      I totally agree with you on S.L. & R.P... but until they implement 24/7 surveillance and a holding barn- they will just keep getting richer! It is sickening!

                        I still can't believe that horse from the other day. I'm not saying she cheated, I'd just like to know what form of oats she feeds to make a dull route horse run like a speed freak. The comment was something like "Speed to spare". I guess the vitamins she feeds along with a great feeding program makes a horse's style change that much.

                          SL and RP

                          Well, SL seems to turn his horses into mini-Secretariets., he is awful in new york.., he seems to do well at Penn Nat and Philly park.., who is RP? By the way, did you happen to see Andy Beyers writeup on Rick Dutrow.., wrote how he turned a horse at gulfstream 35+ points better to win a recent stake race.

                            Last year, Bruce Levine was 50% at monmouth., he got randomly tested and all 19 horses came back fine. There always seem to be talk around Lake, Dutrow's, Jeff Mullins, John Sadler., they got Biancone on snake venom., amazing

                              I don't know that SL is so much a cheater in terms of using EPO or cobra venom as he is a butcher. He'll inject joints with cortizone just so the next person is inheriting dry joints. I don't see too many Lake horses who remain in his barn past 3-4 months. He did used to inject clen buterol in the trachea berfore going over for a race, but they caught onto that in the early 2000's. I don't know the total count, but I'd put the over/under on Lake Clen B positives over the years at about 20.

                              The biggest cheater I know resides at Penn national. They run all over the mid-atlantic except Delaware. WOnder if that has to do with them testing for EPO...hmm, makes you wonder.

                                What does that do to a horse? I got a horse from a very crooked trainer (I learned this after I got the horse..) and she has a respiratory problem that no vet can figure out (its def. not related to a tie-back or anything common).

                                  What kills me, among many things, is why there isn't any regulation on how many times a trainer (or vet for that matter)can go into a horses ankle. How many horses have had their second careers demolished because a trainer/vet goes in there every time they run? I see so many that go to great homes with the assumption that with some R & R will be okay. Only to find out after some time off that their sockets are dry, and if they are lucky, can be lightly ridden. The majority of trainers use the same vet day in and day out, where is the vets ethical accountability? Rant over.
                                  DAILY THOUGHT:

                                  SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE SLINKIES - NOT REALLY GOOD FOR ANYTHING BUT THEY BRING A SMILE TO YOUR FACE WHEN PUSHED DOWN THE STAIRS.

                                    most vets I've dealt with on the racetrack care about one thing. Making money. They generally don't care about the horses when they are done racing. Most, not all vets.
