In March, Heather Vitale made a special visit to see how a very special horse was handling retirement. When Vitale visited Foiled Again at his winter home at the Burke Stable in Astor, FL, she was treated to the early days of his retraining as a riding horse thanks to the work of caretaker Devan Miller.

Vitale also spoke at length with trainer Ron Burke about Foiled Again’s Farewell Tour and the moment the horse walked into the banquet hall at the Dan Patch Awards in Orlando.

That interview is available now on the HRU YouTube channel.

Special thanks to Bow River Jewelry, the Woodbine Entertainment Group and Cunningham Insurance for sponsoring the Foiled Again video.

On Friday, we posted a video featuring horseman Peter Wrenn.

Look for videos featuring Dan Daley, Luc Blais, Jeff Webster, Linda Toscano, Joe Holloway and Tom Cancelliere in the weeks ahead and more videos from Ontario.

Some sponsorship opportunities remain for the videos. To place your video message at the start of a video please contact advertising director Wilma Van Vaerenbergh at: hruadsales@gmail.com.
