Foiled Again wound up in a fourth-place dead-heat Thursday, Feb. 22 at Yonkers Raceway, adding few dollars to the retirement account but holding career win 100 in abeyance.

Sent off the 7-5 favorite from post-position three in the $20,000 eighth-race pace, Foiled Again found the pocket behind pole-sitting Kept Under Wraps A. The brisk evening saw early intervals of :27.1 and :56.4 before BB’s Harley, who made no attempt to secure an early-two-hole from post two, moved from third.

BB’s Harley made steady advances toward the leader through a 1:25.2 third-quarter, with Heez Orl Black N working from second-over.

Kept Under Wraps A faded while BB’s Harley, paying $44.20 to win, went by and edged away, winning by a length-and-a-three-quarters in 1:54.1.

Heez Orl Black N chased home his tow for second, with Twin B Speedo third.

Foiled Again, caught behind a tiring leader in the stretch, and Theartofconfusion A divided the final two envelopes in that ‘heater’ for fourth, beaten two lengths. Foiled Again’s $1,300 payday increased the career bankroll to a sport’s-best $7,572,178. It was the 14-year-old gelding’s 308th purse start and his fourth try at reaching the triple-figure victory milestone.

New York’s WCBS-TV (Channel 2), in the persons of sports anchor Steve Overmyer and cameraman Brad Yurcisin, chronicled Foiled Again's work night for a future feature.

A friendly reminder from Yonkers Raceway that Friday, Feb. 23's Pick 5 wager starts with a carryover of $3,677.73 and a $15,000 guaranteed pool.

The Pick 5 is a 50-cent base wager comprising races six through 10 (for these 10-race cards, ordinarily it’s races 7 through 11). It has no consolation payoff, meaning if no one selects all five winners (as was the case Thursday night), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.
