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.

  • Is Storm Cat really a PA-bred??

    This makes no sense to me.

    I was watching the cute little Bloodhorse/HRTV bit on Terlingua, and it got me thinking about her other offspring.

    So I'm looking at Pedigree Query, and they have Storm Cat listed as a PA-bred.

    Is that right? I'm thinking that surely has to be an error someone entered on the site. He was bred by Overbrook in KY, which as far as I know, never had any PA divisions. Nor can I figure any reason they'd send their mares to PA to foal.

    Anyone got the whole story on this one?

    Yes he is...

    Storm Cat is a PA Bred. He was bred by W. T. Young, and was foaled and raised at Derry Meeting Farm owned by Marshall W. Jenney. He ran for Young, was Grade 1 winner of $570,610, and was trained by Jonathan Sheppard.

    Another great stallion- Danzig- is also a PA bred and Marshall W. Jenney was also a co-breeder on him!

      With all the slots revenue doesn't PA have a very generous breeding reward program for those who foal in the Keystone state?

          Yup. My husband (as owner-breeder) use to make up to 30% more on a PA bred's winnings. They pay owner and breeder. They are also preferred starters in PA and there are PA only and PA added races and bonuses.

            Probably from the info on Pedigree Query:

            Owner: Overbrook Farm
            Breeder: Overbrook Farm
            State Bred: PA

              Yes, but they didn't in 1983!

              Thanks for the explanation, Mambo9. I spend much of my early horse years working coming and going from Derry Meeting (although by then it was the owned by George Strawbridge) and never knew he was foaled there. Pretty neat.

              Anyone know why Young had Terlingua foal at Derry Meeting instead of at his Overbrook Farm in KY? Her previous foal was born in KY, as were the rest of them. It just seems odd they'd ship her to PA for one foal...

                Overbrook did not exist back then, WT Young was just really getting started in the business. Below is from the Jockey Club.

                  I believe Danzig was a PA bred also. Correct me if I am wrong.

                  Don't have time to check that fact right now but it pops into my head.

                    Marshall Jenny

                    Here is a link from the Thoroughbred Times back in 2000.... It informs of Storm Cat, Danzing and other famous PA breds that Marshall Jenny had touched in his life!

                    This should help clarify things a little!

                      Terlingua's 1984 foal was Chapel of Dreams, a stakes-winning filly by Northern Dancer, who stood at E. P. Taylor's Windfields Farm near Chesapeake City, Maryland - roughly an hour's drive from Derry Meeting Farm.

                      At a guess, Terlingua was shipped to Derry Meeting to avoid stressing a very young foal with a long van ride. Derry Meeting has always had a lot of very good clients with high-quality breeding stock, and did quite a bit of seasonal and year-round boarding for mares being bred to the Windfields stallions.

                        Good sleuth work, emj! I didn't even notice that when I was looking at her produce. That completely makes sense to foal her out on the east coast when you'll be breeding back to an east coast stallion.

                            Bred by Mike Moran, whose mother Elizabeth also bred Creme Fraiche and High Yield. The Morans routinely have what I would consider to be the nicest-bred stock in PA, if not the whole Mid-Atlantic. I believe that she also has at least one share in Storm cat.

                                  Interesting list... I was familiar with most of them as PA-breds. Although being born and raised in PA and now living in TN, I feel like a total idiot. I now live about 2 minutes from the Belle Meade Plantation, which advertises itself as the birthplace of Iroquois. Complete with statue of Iroquois as a foal. Heck, I live in the Iroquois Apartment complex for christs sake! Now I realize that he only stood stud there.

                                  I feel like the native Pennsylvanian in me needs to go around and correct everyone! LOL! So what farm was Iroquois foaled at in PA?

                                    It's not you, he's documented that way all over. Including State Facts info #3 http://www.50states.com/facts/tenn.htm

                                    I found two references:

                                    1) " This equestrian event was named for Iroquois, the first American-bred horse to win the English Derby in 1881. The famous racehorse was born in 1878, in Chestnut, Pa., and was named for the Indian tribe. Iroquois was brought to Nashville's Belle Meade plantation where he died in 1899. The thoroughbred was buried on the plantation grounds, but the grave is in an unknown location. Iroquois was purchased as a yearling by George Lorillard, an American tobacco millionaire. Lorillard shipped several horses, including Iroquois, to his stables in England to be trained. The horses were accompanied by Lorillard's trainer, Jacob Pincus. As a two-year-old, Iroquois won four of 11 starts and seven of nine races at age three. The brown horse stood 16 hands high and his greatest victory came at the English Derby. Iroquois' successful races established him as the second favorite with 11 to 2 odds. The 1881 Derby was the 102nd renewal of the mile-and-a-half course event. The famous jockey, Fred Archer, was so impressed by Iroquois' past performances that his request to ride the stallion was anxiously granted. Archer rode Iroquois to an upset victory over Peregrine, winning by a neck to become the first American-bred horse to win the most famous horse race in the world. It would not be until 1954 that another American-bred horse, Never Say Die, would win the English Derby....

                                    " Later that racing season, Iroquois also won the St. Leger and the Prince of Wales Stakes. He was the only horse to win those three races in the 102 years they were run. After Iroquois' triumphs on the English turf, Lorillard brought his prized race horse to his stables in Jobstown, N. J. to stud. In October 1886, Lorillard closed his stables and held an auction to sell all his thoroughbreds, including Iroquois. William H. Jackson, who was the proprietor of the Belle Meade Plantation, heard about the auction, attended it and purchased Iroquois for $20,000. " http://host1.bondware.com/~citypaper...viewStory=3656

                                    2) June 1, 1881, Iroquois, who was later purchased by Belle Meade Plantation, had the honor of being the first American horse to win the English Derby. http://www.mc.vanderbilt.edu/reporte...x.html?ID=2067

                                    EDITED TO ADD:
                                    If you follow the dam, Maggie BB, she was never owned by Belle Meade. She was bred by James B. Clay, Jr., a grandson of the renowned Kentucky politician Henry Clay; owned by several of the Clays; M.A. Littell; Captain T.G. Moore; then sold to breeder Aristides Welch and sent to his Erdenheim Stud at Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia. In 1877 Maggie B.B. came up barren, but the next year foaled a dark brown son of Leamington destined for fame as IROQUOIS. Iroquois was sold to Pierre Lorillard, and was shipped to England as a yearling in 1879. Iroquois was turned over to Jacob Pincus to be trained. http://www.tbheritage.com/Portraits/MaggieBB.html

                                      I assume that's the same Erdenheim Farm later of Eugene Dixon's family.

                                      This is all quite interested to me, seeing as how Tennessee state history is lying to everyone, LOL. Seriously, ask anyone around here why Iroquois is significant, and they'll say he was born at Belle Meade.
