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.

  • Post A Note-1995 Gelding

    I just received a call from one of the TIER volunteers regarding one of the horses we have here.

    His registered name is Post A Note, we call him Garrett. The caller indicated she had pulled up some records somewhere (I have no idea where and do not know how to do that stuff myself) which indicated this horse is listed as deceased as of 1999. At the time of rescue, Garrett's hock was blown. Here is a link to his page on our website w/the full story: GARRETT

    When we got Garrett out of the feedlot, I did a tatto search on him and was able to identify him. I contacted the breeder who was also listed as the owner. I was told they had given him to a lady after he sustained his injury and the registration papers went with him.

    A year or so ago I noticed that the farm where he was foaled was under new management and contacted them for more information. I was told the same story and the new management indicated that there was no information at the farm on this horse other than he had been given away and they didn't know what happened to his papers.

    How do I go about finding his registration papers? He's not dead. Here's the link to the Del Mar Pedigree on Post A Note

    Thanks for any info that can be provided.

    Unless you can find the lady who was sold him with his papers, you are pretty much SOL. Someone else just had a thread about it, and basically you need a notarized letter from the last person to have the papers saying they're lost and then you have to pay a fee to the Jockey Club to get duplicate papers. So unless you find the owner who had the papers, there isn't much you can do.

      What difference would having papers make on a gelding if he is who you think he is? Just enjoy him and be happy.

      He's a lovely, lovely horse, and a blacktype winner to boot with a droolworthy sport horse pedigree.

        Not quite sure why it would matter if someone thought the horse was dead?

        Anyway, the Jockey Club requires a notarized statement from the previous owner stating how the papers were lost or destroyed along with a $150 fee. Not worth the effort or the money for a gelding.

        He shows up in the Jockey Club's tattoo search, so he is still in their system. If his papers had been returned and destroyed, his info would not show up in their database I don't think.....

        It's actually on a sample sire report for Avenue of Flags from EquineLine where he's listed as being deceased in 1999. It's a mistake on their end, and not worth wasting your time trying to fix the error.....

          Thanks everyone. I just thought it was rather strange that I was informed that he was listed as deceased when I had spoken to 2 different people at the farm on two different occassions.

            Whoanellie,

            Did he come with the name Post A Note, or did you get that name from the tattoo reasearch? If you were reading the tattoo number off his lip, are you sure your tattoo number is correct?

            From the pictures on your website it doesn't look like he has any white markings, so I went to TJC's tattoo reasearch site, typed in the tattoo you have on your website and that the horse doesn't have any white markings and the result didn't match Post A Note. I used the Y01507 tattoo number. Does he have any markings?

            I used to work for TJC and handled the tattoo reasearch and we would have this issue come up every so often. Usually, one of two things were the cause. The tattoo was read incorrectly and they identified the wrong horse, or the owners that gave the horse away gave the new owners the papers, but filed a death report so the horse couldn't race again. Some racehorse owners will do this with geldings (generally not mares), as it gives the sporthorse owner the satifaction of having the papers in hand, while giving the racehorse seller the piece of mind that the horse won't be returned to racing.

              Is it possible to report a horse dead without returning the papers? Or are they just culled from the records after a certain time? My old horse's name has been released--does that just happen automatically?

                First answer is yes, you can file a death report online and not return the papers. I have the papers on all of my deceased horses.

                Second answer is also yes. The names are recycled automatically. Here are the exact rules regarding the reuse of names from TJC's rule book.

                E. Names of horses over ten years old may be eligible for use if they are not excluded under Rule 6(F) and have not been used during the preceding five years either for breeding or racing.
                Names of horses that were never used for breeding or racing may be available for use five years from the date of their death as reported.


                F. The following classes of names are not eligible for use:
                1. Names consisting of more than 18 letters (spaces and punctuation marks count as letters);
                2. Names consisting entirely of initials such as C.O.D., F.O.B., etc.;
                3. Names ending in "filly," "colt," "stud," "mare," "stallion," or any similar horse-related term;
                4. Names consisting entirely of numbers. Numbers above thirty may be used if they are spelled out;
                5. Names ending with a numerical designation such as "2nd" or "3rd," whether or not such a designation is spelled out;
                6. Names of living persons unless written permission to use their name is on file with The Jockey Club;
                7. Names of persons no longer living unless approval is granted by The Jockey Club based upon a satisfactory written explanation submitted to the Registrar;
                8. Names of racetracks or graded stakes races;
                9. Names clearly having commercial, artistic or creative significance;
                10. Names that are suggestive or have a vulgar or obscene meaning; names considered in poor taste; or names that may be offensive to religious, political or ethnic groups;
                11. Names that appear to be designed to harass, humiliate or disparage a specific individual, group of individuals or entity;
                12. Names that are currently active either in racing or breeding (see Rule6(E));
                13. Names of winners in the past 25 years of grade one stakes races;
                14. Permanent names. The list of criteria to establish a permanent name is as follows:
                a. Horses in racing's Hall of Fame;
                b. Horses that have been voted Horse of the Year;
                c. Horses that have won an Eclipse Award;
                d. Horses that have won a Sovereign Award (Canadian Champions);
                e. Annual leading sire and broodmare sire by progeny earnings;
                f. Cumulative money winners of $2 million or more;
                g. Horses that have won the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, Belmont Stakes, The Jockey Club Gold Cup, the Breeders' Cup Classic or the Breeders' Cup Turf; and
                h. Horses included in the International List of Protected Names.

                  Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to find more info. I'm just not familiar with the researching other than trying to find the identity of one of our other TB's and not coming up with anything at all.

                  We got the name from tattoo research. Our vet confirmed the tattoo when he came to the rescue. He was a 3 year old at the time and the tatto was very clear. I haven't revisited the tattoo in some time. Our vet is VERY familiar with racing TB's as he also has racehorses and does some vet work at Santa Anita, Pomona.

                  From the pictures on your website it doesn't look like he has any white markings, so I went to TJC's tattoo reasearch site, typed in the tattoo you have on your website and that the horse doesn't have any white markings and the result didn't match Post A Note. I used the Y01507 tattoo number. Does he have any markings?
                  No, he doesn't have any white markings. What white markings are listed in your research?

                  I used to work for TJC and handled the tattoo reasearch and we would have this issue come up every so often. Usually, one of two things were the cause.

                  With the injury he sustained, I would imagine they wouldn't have wanted him to be returned to racing. The other thing I was wondering about was if he was listed as deceased in 1999 did the farm have insurance on him and collect?

                    Unlikely this is the case. A vet would have had to submit a false death report which is insurance fraud and would cause him to lose his license as well as a potential prison sentance.

                    I looked up the tattoo number you provided, Y01507 and entered that it was a bay gelding (I also tried colt) and the system comes back that the tattoo number doesn't match a bay with no white markings. So, I'm not sure how they came up with Post A Note. It sounds like it's possible you have the wrong horse. You can confirm by calling TJC at (800) 444-8521 and they will research it for you. Maybe someone else here will go in their account and try it to make sure I'm not typing something in incorrectly.

                      Post A Note has the following markings-

                      Mixed patch of white hairs to right in forehead. Right hind: patch of white hairs on coronet in front; heel white. Cowlick to left at top of eye level.

                      If your horse is a plain bay, then the tattoo you researched is the wrong one......

                        A bit off topic here, but I wondered how well he healed up for you? I see your link shows info from 2004. That was an ugly hock on him. Were you able to get him sound enough for light trail riding?

                          The cowlick,white hairs on cornet in front match. The white heel is on the right rear. Can't find "mixed patch of white hairs to right in forehead"

                          It was an ugly hock! He is fine for trail riding and has a nice temperment. The only time he exhibits any "stiffness" is when he lays down to roll. Getting up is no problem, going down he takes his time.

                            There was another TB named Post a Note foaled in 1984. Is it possible THAT Post a Note is the one that died in 1999?

                              Hmmm. I suppose anything is possible. I do have a link to the 1998 Camino Real Derby where OUR Post A Note ran. I am not terribly knowledgeable regarding the race horse industry. In this race, he seemed to be dong pretty darned good until his stablemate, Event of the Year, out ran him at the end.

                              1998 Camino Real Derby

                              I know he also ran in the Golden State "something or other". Don't know the name of the race, but it was in California I think. Probably in 1998. I was told there is a video of this one too, but I can't seem to find it.
