Burgart’s at Los Alamitos Race Course unveiled its brand new horse racing wagering room and sports bar to great fanfare, while also unveiling its brand new name: Burgart's, in honor of the legendary Ed Burgart, Quarter Horse racing’s greatest announcer. The name was kept a surprise from Ed Burgart until it was revealed live on TVG.
"Our new lounge is named after our dearest friend and a legend at Los Alamitos Race Course and Quarter Horse racing. And it is so appropriate that a fun sports bar be 'Burgart's'," said Cathy Monji, the president of Los Alamitos Race Course.
"Ed Burgart is Los Alamitos Race Course," added Ed Allred, the owner of Los Alamitos. "He is incredibly talented announcer, handicapper, price maker, and writer. His voice and name are synonymous with Los Alamitos Quarter Horse racing. I did everything possible to keep him here, and I finally ran out of schemes. He will now have a well-deserved retirement."
