WHERE THE LINE GETS DRAWN
DailyFeed
According to Daily Racing Form, the cash-strapped New York Racing Association (NYRA) has eliminated several traditional stakes and reduced the purses of many others at its fall Belmont and Aqueduct meets, one of the casualties of inflation in gaming opportunities and deflation in attendance, handle and, ultimately, purses. Among those being placed on hiatus? Only the one with the most awesome name ever! The Bertram F. Bongard Stakes, a seven furlong stakes race for two-year-old fillies run at Belmont Park.

This is where I draw the line. Friends, we cannot allow deflation to ruin our awesomely-named horse races! Join me, won't you, in petitioning NYRA to Bring Back the Bongard! by purchasing a Bring Back the Bongard! t-shirt. All proceeds will go to the Bongard, once they bring it back... via the mutuel windows of course.
