THE world’s richest pacer, Foiled Again, will make a stop on his farewell tour at Harrington Raceway on Monday.
The venerable pacer is in his last year of racing at age 14, and will compete in the third race on the program.
Connections will then make the gelding available for a meet and greet in the west grandstand parking lot where fans can take photos and interact with the legendary pacer.
Local television host Heather Vitale, host of weekly harness racing show “Post Time,” was instrumental in coordinating the meet and greet for fans.
Foiled Again has an impressive history at Harrington as the only horse to win the track’s signature race three times, the Bobby Quillen Memorial.
Winner of more than $7.6million in stakes, Foiled Again has an impressive resume which includes 104 wins and being voted the Aged Pacer of the Year in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
He is the first pacer to have three straight million-dollar earning seasons and has won such prestigious races as the Breeders’ Crown, TVG Championship, Ben Franklin, Canadian Pacing Derby, Graduate, American National, Molson Pace, Indiana Pacing Derby (twice), George Morton Levy Memorial (twice) and Battle of Lake Erie(three times).
Owned by Burke Racing, the Weaver Bruscemi partnership and JJK Stables, Foiled Again will be forced into retirement at the end of the year.
