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!

    Does anyone know where this horse is? I really like him and would love to try and keep track of him and maybe even be there in the end for him.....

      Since his last race was the KY Derby and he's owned by Mrs. Craig, I doubt he's in peril. In fact, as a G1 winner, I'd venture that he's just fine. My guess is the he'll start next in the Swaps S at HOL in July.

        I signed up for a thing called Virtual Stable. They send me notices on the horses I've chosen for my stable. It's one way of keeping track. Sidneys Candy is a nice horse. Unless he really falls on hard times, I don't see him going cheap any time soon. (my idea of cheap is under $500.00)

          He's also intact and a son of Candy Ride, plus the whole Derby thing (poor finish or no.) I strongly suspect he's headed to the shed when he's done on the track.

              Virtual Stable through equibase.com is a good way to keep track. You can contact the track/center where he's training to let them know your interest. They might give you trainer's contact or even owner's contact. Better than nothing.

                As he's unlikely to be sold off the track Virtual Stable may not help once he's retired. Keep an eye on things like DRF and bloodhorse and watch for where he ends up going to stud.

                  It's nice that you are interested in the horse. There are plenty out there that need a home, but I doubt Sidney's Candy is one of them. I hate to discourage anyone that wants to give a retired race horse a new home, but don't embarrass yourself. I won some money on this year's Derby and jokingly told a friend I would pay x amt. of dollars (a very small amount!) for a very well known horse that hasn't been running up to his owners expectations. My friend works for a vet who does some work for this owner. Long story short, she called them and told them of my "offer". I was JOKING and I'm mortified. This horse is in no danger whatsoever and now I'm afraid to ever step foot on their farm again

                    Ya know ya never know what the future may bring..Look at what happened to other G1 winners, ie: Ferdinand and Exceller for instance...Or Chelokee( I think he was at the G2 or 3 level).. thank god he hopefully is in a good place. If a stallion does not produce well he is not kept around. I am saying in years to come...when he is an old man..I would love to see him and help him if he needs it. I have a special place for this horse. I own a Candy Stripes son and love the line. I know, the chances are slim but still the offer is out there down the line.

                      Chelokee is standing at the University of Arizona, he's fine. The other two weren't in this country when they were sent to slaughter, so it's a bit different.

                      But it doesn't hurt to ask/offer.

                        He worked well at HP this morning. Six furlongs, 1.11:60 handily.

                        As far as charity cases go, I think you can look elsewhere.

                                    Oh I didn't hear that about Macias--thought he just tired. Hope he is ok.
                                    Bad day -- I saw Fantasy Free fall. I don't think that ended well for the horse but Mike Smith was ok to ride, after sitting out a couple, in the La Jolla.

                                      That was a wonderful effort and it didn't look like he was taxed at all in setting the track record. Impressive!

                                        Fantasy Free was euthanized.

                                        The latest from DRF:

                                        "Macias faded to finish last in the field of eight, and was vanned off because of concern over his right foreleg, according to track stewards."
