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!

          Somewhat randomly, I was just trying to think of her name yesterday (and couldn't, ugh).

          Cheers to Pepper's Pride!


          • Original Poster

            Unfortunately her race of yesterday does not appear to be part of the Calracing.com library of videos. The last race viewable by Pepper's Pride is from 3/24/2007.

            I missed her effort on TVG as I DVR'd the sprogram which ended 1 minute before post time. They didn't air the race until their coverage changed into the next segment which I didn't program in to record


            • Original Poster

              As cited:

              [Pepper's Pride] is chasing the modern day record of 16 consecutive wins to begin a career held jointly by Mister Frisky and Hallowed Dreams.
              (Worth mentioning that Citation & Cigar both hold 16-race streaks - the modern record - but never started their career's with that streak, which is the distinction between them and Mister Frisky and Hallowed Dreams)

              Mister Frisky at 2-yrs old was Puerto Rico's Horse of the Year (1989); his 16 consecutive win streak ended in the 1990 Kentucky Derby. Ridden by Gary Stevens he finished 8th with the famed Unbridled taking the victory for Mrs. Frances A. Genter in the well known emotional victory.

              Mister Frisky set two track records in his career. His final record: 20 starts 16-1-2

              Louisiana-born and raced almost exclusively there (3 starts were in Texas), Hallowed Dreams (f), at 3-yrs old brought her 16-0 streak to the Fair Grounds in August 2000. She finished 3rd in the $35,000 Millennium Stakes in. Winning on turf and dirt the gal later developed ankle problems and was retired in July 2002.

              Like Mister Frisky, Hallowed Dreams also set two track records in her career. One at the Fair Grounds and another at Evangeline Downs, the latter being in just her 3rd start. Her final record: 30 starts 25-1-3

                Oh, I feel your pain. I now record 1 hr before and after post time!

                Funny side story. On Breeders Cup day, while I was parked in front of the tv bc there was no way I was going to trust my 2 vcrs and dvr, my friend who is new horse racing fan went up to the Penn State game (HUH?). I said "but you'll miss it!!!" He said "no, I dvr'ed it".

                At midnight I get a call...."Where is the last race, where is the classic???? The program stopped recording after the turf race". I died laughing. I knew he didn't bother to notice there were actually 2 horse race shows on ESPN within those 6 hours. Whooohooo. Go Penn State, who lost btw

                      That is a lot of weight for a mare in a non-graded race. But she earned it.

                      Fingers crossed for #14! She already made it past unlucky 13, so this should be a cake walk.

                          DRF 12-14-07 "Big burden for Peppers Pride"


                          Peppers Pride defeated nine others in her last start, the $182,000 New Mexico Cup Filly and Mare at Zia Park, but has just five rivals Sunday. One of them, however, is Hang Glide, a closer who finished second by two lengths in the Filly and Mare. She is weighted at 118 pounds, nine less than Peppers Pride.

                          "We were equal weights in our last out," said Joel Marr, who trains Peppers Pride for her breeder, Joe Allen.

                          Peppers Pride is picking up four pounds off the Filly and Mare, but will be carrying the same amount she did three races back when she won the $45,000 Lincoln Handicap at Ruidoso in July. The runner-up in that race, Theregoesdancer, toted 121. Marr said the weight spread in the New Mexico Racing Commission is his biggest concern.

                          "She's training well, feeling good," he said of Peppers Pride. "I feel good about her. I don't feel good about having to carry nine more pounds than the next-weighted horse."

                            She did it!

                              She is now 14-0!

                              Peppers Pride wins with the extra weight - her class over that field shows as she overtakes the leader in the final corner and stretchs out to win by a couple of lengths!

                              There is no horse in modern racing history who has gone 15-0 so the next streak holders are all at 16-0.

                                      From the TB Times Dec 16, 2007:

                                      Peppers Pride won for the seventh time in as many starts this season and increased her earnings to $756,665. She could be pointed to the $100,000 Sydney Valentini Handicap on March 23 at Sunland.

                                          In case anyone is wondering about Man O'War's win streak:

                                          He lost in the Sanford Stakes Aug 14, 1919 in what was his 7th start; he went on to finish as we know with 21 starts 20-1-0
