Woodbine Entertainment has announced that Foiled Again, the richest Standardbred of all time, is scheduled to make a visit to Woodbine Mohawk Park on Saturday, December 22 for the penultimate stop on his farewell tour.
A career-winner of more than $7.5 million, Foiled Again is currently in his final season of racing before mandatory retirement. The connections of the 14-year-old gelding have taken the opportunity to showcase the legendary pacer to racing fans across North America.
Foiled Again is trained by Ron Burke and owned by Burke Racing Stable LLC, Mark Weaver & Mike Bruscemi (Weaver Bruscemi LLC) and Joe & Kevin Koury (JJK Stables LLC).
Fans in attendance on December 22 will have the opportunity to see Foiled Again compete in a race. His visit to Woodbine Mohawk Park is currently scheduled as the second-last start of his career – he is scheduled to race for a final time on New Year’s Eve (December 31) at the Meadows in Pennsylvania.
Foiled Again has won 102 of his 319 career starts. Over the course of his career, the legendary pacer has made a combined 17 starts at what is now Woodbine Mohawk Park in Campbellville, Ont. and suburban Toronto’s Woodbine Racetrack, which conducted live Standardbred racing until recently. From those 17 starts, Foiled Again recorded five wins and 13 top-three finishes.
Woodbine Mohawk Park has been an important location during the career of Foiled Again.
The Ron Burke trainee raced in five consecutive editions of the historic Canadian Pacing Derby from 2011 to 2015 and won the 2012 edition. His victory in the $787,000 Canadian Pacing Derby on September 1, 2012 will go down as the most lucrative win of his career.
Foiled Again’s lengthy list of accomplishments include multiple Dan Patch Awards, an O’Brien Award and victories in the Breeders Crown (2013), TVG Free-For-All (2013), Ben Franklin (2013) and Molson Pace (2011, 2012).
More details regarding Foiled Again’s visit to Woodbine Mohawk Park will be released in the coming weeks.
