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.

  • Tracking down an unknown named full sister

    Hey all - my first post in this section, as I don't have a racer! I am curious about my TB's full sister as I believe she ran in some races (probably not anything "fancy"). She is a year younger than him. I don't know her name, or know where she's at now. I got mine before he was old enough to ever hit the track, and the breeder invited me to take a look at the sister when she was a yearling and prior to her sale. Her new owner later contacted me asking if my guy was for sale, and if he had been gelded yet (he had). He did not seem at all interested in inviting me out to see the filly, the conversation pretty much ended when the word "geld" came up.

    Mine is 5 1/2 now, putting her at 4 1/2. I don't know her name, but his sire/dam are listed on the pedigree lookup site, as is he. How would I go about finding "relatives" - so to speak? I had hoped there would be a link to click on or something that would give a full list of all registered horses out of/by the dam/sire, but it apparently isn't that easy. LOL

    I'm just curious how she's doing, if she ever did anything decent on the track, and where she is now.

    Thanks for any suggestions

    delmar pedigree site had several functions to track offspring ans siblings. I am not sure though how much of the fun stuff is still free...


    • #3
      Go here and put in the dam and the year and it will give you the name if she was registered (I mean named) and if she raced she had to have been! =)


      I'd have done it but I don't know the names! =)

        Well, what's your horse's name or the dam's name?

        You can go to pedigreequery.com and type in your horses name. Then click on the dam. Under "Reports" at the top of the page (right above the horse's name), choose "Progeny" from the drop down menu. Any progeny will be listed by their name. That is a free service and you don't have to be a registered member to do that.

        If your horse's sister isn't listed on Pedigree Query, there is something called "The American Produce Records" (or APR) that is software that lists all registered foals, their pedigrees, performance records, etc. Several people who post on this board have copies of it and can look up all the progeny of your horse's dam.

        Hope this helps!

          If you have the sire and dam, I'd be happy to look her up on APR.... PM me or post it.


          • #6
            You can look up the progeny of any horse on Pedigreequery.com, just click where is says "Reports" and a pop-up menu pops up.
            For example, her is the progeny report for Somethingroyal.

            Of course not every horse is entered in pedigreequery, and there is also some erroneous data ( it's open to anyone to edit) so to get an official list of progeny for any mare you can go to equineline.com, a wing of the JC. A simple produce report for any mare costs just $1


            • Original Poster

              haha - sorry - I should have clarifed. I'm sure she was NAMED. I just don't, however, know her name in order to look it up.


              • Original Poster

                Hmmmmm either I'm doing something wrong, or the information is entered incorrectly.

                I went to pedigreequery.com, typed in my horses name. It brought up his pedigree. So I clicked on his dam's name. Brought up hers. I then clicked on "progeny" and it brought up two horses:

                My horse, with the incorrect foal year (2003, when he is 2002). The second horse listed was my horses SIRE who was also listed as a foal year of 2003, when he is a 1993. And no, my horses sire is not the offspring of his dam. lol

                I will pm some info to those that said I could. thanks. I'm sure the filly didn't get far, but I'm just curious where she ended up. Did not sound like her owner really cared one way or the other for his racers. He commented during the conversation that perhaps one day I could purchase her when she couldn't race anymore. Kind of sad, but the reality of the biz I suppose.

                EDIT - whoops, I did find her! Thanks guys. Her name is similar to the sire, so when I glanced through I thought it was his name. My horse is still listed as the incorrect birth year (not important I suppose) and both the filly and he are listed as 2003. It appears she is, or was, racing. 13 starts, 1 win, 5 places, 2 shows

                  Yes, Pedigree query information can be edited by anyone and entered by anyone, so it is not always accurate. You can correct your horse's info by clinking on Maintenance and changing it.
                  Here is the APR on your horse's dam - she only had the 2 foals:

                    Thanks again guys! I replied back to all the pm's, hope I didn't miss anything. I have learned a little today about pedigrees (of which I previously knew little about) and how to search for things.

                    So thanks for taking the time to explain it.

                    I did pm someone back asking what the numbers mean, especially on mine who has never raced. The part where it says DP = etc etc etc

                    What does that mean?


                    • #11

                      I replied to you, but for others reading, those are Dosage stats. DP=Dosage Points, DI is the Dosage Index and CD= Center of Distribution (I think). These are supposed to indicte what type of a runner the horse will be - long, medium or short distances, speed and stamina etc. Terms like "classic", "brilliant" etc are used to denote the type of runner and it's based on their pedigree. If you do a search in this forum, others explain it much better than my poor attempt.


                      • #12
                        For a full explanation on the "dosage profile" (DP), and info on how to read the APR report, check out the Racing 101 sticky thread at the top of the forum:

                          hmmm....I read that, three times, and it's just not really sinking in. As I said, I know little of this side of the horse world other than the result of the race world (OTTB's) that I worked with over the years. Mostly what I don't get is the DI and CD....

                          Does anyone care to break it down on my horse and tell me what his numbers would tell you, as an experienced horse person? When I look at him, he doesn't really look like a racehorse. But then again, he's always a little on the (cough) heavy side. He's a VERY easy keeper! Only gets a handful of oats twice a day for his supplements, otherwise just plently of good hay and grass.

                          But he just seems heavy bodied in general to me. I like him because of it, but I can't picture him on a racetrack. Heck, I have to use plently of leg (not kicking, just firm) just to keep him moving at a nice canter.
