Foiled Again Roars Back With a Win in the Battle of Lake Erie

It was a race for the ages that was won by the aged.

No matter how old he is, no matter how bad his recent form might have been, never, never, never, never, never, never write Foiled Again off. Just when it looked like he was finally done, the 11-year-old wonder horse scored a game victory in last night’s $175,000 Battle of Lake Erie at Northfield Park, It was the third time he won the race, the first coming way back in 2009.

“He is the toughest horse in the history of harness racing,” winning driver Matt Kakaley said when it was over.
