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!

        Sorry, links take me ages! She sold at Tattersalls in England a few mins ago for 320,000gns. Yes, she is flashy like her Dad. She is a gorgeous individual. Went to Ross Doyle but don't know who actually bought her. Sure it will be in the papers tomorrow.

          Not sure if it was cited before but this is the 2nd time she's been sold ...

          UK Press Association - October 7, 2009

          Washington filly to train with Hannon
          (UKPA) – 14 minutes ago

          The only horse ever sired by the late George Washington will go into training with Richard Hannon after she was purchased at the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale at Newmarket on Wednesday evening.

          George Washington's only offspring, a filly carrying her father's trademark white markings across her nose, was bought by bloodstock agent Ross Doyle for 320,000 guineas.

          Doyle said: "She's a lovely filly, gorgeous and lovely looking. I'm sure the vendor doesn't want to hear this, but I thought she'd make a little bit more. She's the sort of filly we like - she's got a lot of substance to her - and she'll go into training with Richard Hannon."

          He added: "George Washington was a freak and I hope she can be a freak like him."

          George Washington was crowned champion two-year-old in 2005 and was a winner of four Group One races, including the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket and the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot.

          Having been unsuccessful at Coolmore Stud, the son of Danehill made a dramatic return to the track, but died in action during the 2007 Breeders' Cup Classic.

          The filly, out of the mare Flawlessly, was bought by horse trader Gerry Burke, of Glidawn Stud, for 280,000 euros last year at Goffs November Sale.

          She was born at the Irish National Stud on February 4, 2008 and was the most expensive foal sold in Ireland during the same year. In total, George Washington covered 56 mares before he was withdrawn from stud duty in March 2007, having proved sub-fertile.

            Will she race? It's still to be determined ...

            Racingbase 10-7-2009

            It remains to be seen whether his daughter will ever see a racecourse, such is her value as a breeding prospect.

            Before the sales on Wednesday, Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony explained: “She is an outstanding physical specimen and of course she is unique.

            “It is wonderfully appropriate that she will be sold at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October yearling sale as her father. George Washington, was the 1,150,000 guineas sale topper at the first October Book 1 in 2004.”

            She was the highest-priced weanling sold in Ireland in 2008.

              Well it says she will be trained by Richard Hannon so I guess if everything goes alright they intend to race her. I hope she does race and ends up a real good one.

                    Normally I'm all for racing a horse if it's bred for racing unless there is something profoundly wrong with it, but with this one...unless she blows away the competition I'd stick her in a field after one start and wait until she's old enough breed. It's not like there is any way to make more.

                      WOW! what time is it there? Has the race gone off yet? I wonder if HRTV had it on, because I recorded all morning (since Kinsale King was running at Newmarket), but haven't watched it yet.

                            Really nicely done! Richard Hannon is the man with 2yo's on this side of the pond so knew she would be ready as long as she had the talent. I didn't get to see it live as I don't have RUK anymore so thanks for the replay!

                                I thought she was sure to be a plow mule after they named her that. Really cool to see her live up to it so quickly.

                                        I forgot to add that since I moved into my new place here 3 months ago I met a woman who boards here. Turns out she is friends with the pinhooker who bought Destiny as a foal. So she has lots of pics with her and Destiny as a yearling from last summer.

                                        She does have a gorgeous head!
