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!

  • Fasig-Tipton Mid-Atlantic 2-year olds in training sale...

    So besides there being quite a few horses I am going to take a look at when I go...I was going through and noticed one that REALLY caught my eye.

    So any guesses to how much he'll go for...here's his page:


    Guess his value greatly increased after last Saturday!

  • #2
    I can see why he caught your eye!!! I bet his value has significantly increased since last Saturday. I'm VERY curious to hear what Hip 107 brings.

    Please keep us posted!


    • #3
      Actually, I believe he was post-entered in the sale & became hip #107 when the original hip #107 scratched. I'm pretty sure I read it in the TB Times.

      His owners are working on the 'strike while the iron's hot' theory.

        Yes, you can tell he was just entered, since the Derby is already on the page.


        • Original Poster

          Doesn't mean his value didn't increase. Though I could have sworn he was in there before, as there are only two from Yonaguska that are entered, and I remember there being 2 a few weeks ago (I have a Yonaguska already so I was looking).


          • #6
            and when is the sale. and will they do a live stream ?

            • Original Poster

              May 18th and 19th. I believe there should be a live stream of the sale ring. Also later next week they should have the videos of the works online. "Under saddle" showings are scheduled for the 13th and 14th.


              • #8
                That colt was purchased at the OBS 2YO sale in March for $100,000. After the Derby, his new owner, Paul Saylor, decided to see if he could turn him around for a quick profit. And the fact that Musket Man (by Yonaguska) ran 3rd in the Derby doesn't hurt either his prospects either.

                I'd imagine the price will be pretty high, otherwise Mr. Saylor plans to keep the colt and race him.


                • #9
                  Is anyone going to be at the sale? I am driving up tomorrow to watch my colt breeze on Wednesday, very nervous!!


                  • #10
                    So exciting . Keep us all posted on the workout times. Good luck

                      I'll be at the sale. We'll see if I pick anything up.

                      For those not there...there should be live streaming of the auction ring.


                      • #12
                        Does anyone know the web link to the Live Feed ? trying to locate now and for some reason I can"t???

                          Usually it's at the Fasig Tipton web site. Here, on the left you'll see the link. At this moment the ring's empty.http://www.fasigtipton.com/


                          • #14
                            Ours is #244. He went in 11 flat, but very smoothly and the rider was still on him. He is a little horse but has a huge walk and is a very good mover...fingers crossed! Although he is a NY bred and after watching Mine That Bird fit through those little holes in the Derby I am getting more and more into the idea of racing him!


                            • #15
                              So I am watching the Live Feed. and wanted to know what all the Race Trainers / Breeders are thinking of the prices today ?
                              Do they seem on target or what?
                              any thoughts on this ...

                                What happened to 107? Is this the same sale?

                                    Just stopped in to check this thread. Hip 107 went for $485,000.

                                    There are a few that have gone for a lot more than I expected.

                                      I am not sure I am watching the right feed either.
