As George Brennan succinctly said, “What can I say?”

Brennan spoke of Foiled Again beginning his final racing season with his 99th career victory Saturday night (January 13), highlighting Yonkers Raceway’s 11-race soiree.

The sport’s richest horse added to his $7.5 million retirement account with a hard-earned, half-length victory. Quarter-moving to the lead from post position No. 3 in the $20,000, fourth-race pace, even-money favourite Foiled Again ($4) took a lot of first-up heat from All Down The Line (Eric Goodell).

In start No. 304, Foiled Again won that back-half battle, prevailing by a half-length in 1:55. The 14-year-old Dragon Again gelding, co-owned by trainer Ron Burke (as Burke Racing), Weaver Bruscemi and JJK Stables, improved the bankroll to $7,568,478 (U.S.).

Informed this was indeed Foiled Again’s 99th win, Brennan said, “I’m reasonably sure he gets to 100.”

Saturday night’s featured $40,000 Open Pace saw Thisjetsabookin (Jordan Stratton, $18.40) rebuff 3-5 fave Gokudo Hanover (Matt Kakaley) at the quarter, then finish it off. From post No. 5 in the half-dozen, Thisjetsabookin (:27, :56.3, 1:25, 1:53.3) held off the odds-on choice by a half-length, with Killer Martini (Brent Holland) third.

For fourth choice Thisjetsabookin, a six-year-old Jeremes Jet owned by William Emmons and trained by William Adamczyk, the win was his third in the last six tries dating to early November. The exacta paid $46, with the triple returning $119.

Reminder: The Raceway offers another ‘French’ Sunday (January 14), with a first post of 11:30 a.m.
