This is your last chance…

…to make known your feelings about the changes in the structure and nomenclature of this year’s Breeder’s Cup.

If you think it’s ridiculous that none of the distaff races are being run on Saturday…

If you find the concept of “Filly Friday” or “Ladies’ Day” abhorrent…

If you believe that the words “distaff,” “filly,” and “mare” more than adequately represent the female side of horse racing…

If you believe that a “Ladies’ Classic” is an insult to the tradition of Shuvee, Personal Ensign, Winning Colors, Ouija Board, Azeri, Lady’s Secret, Princess Rooney (add in your own favorites)…

If you are in agony because some of your favorite races will be run while you’re at work…

then, please, take this opportunity to sign our petition, make your displeasure known, and Take Back the Race!

The petition, signatures, and comments will be mailed to the Breeders’ Cup folks on Friday…join us in letting them know that these decisions are a denigration of, not an improvement to, the Breeders’ Cup traditions…let your voice and your name be among those decrying these changes, and asking for re-consideration in the next twelve months…

One thought on “This is your last chance…

  1. I applaud you for sticking to your guns and not betting,watching or attending the Friday card, as your Take back the Race petition pledges. You stand out from some of the same TBA people who signed the petition and now are “live blogging” todays card, talking about watching it and some even betting it. I won’t name names, just scan the blogroll and read for yourself.anyway..thanks for being true to your word.
