Clear Vision edged out Foiled Again by a narrow margin in last year’s Bobby Quillen Memorial, but the sport’s richest pacer of all-time turned the tables on his stablemate in this year’s edition at Harrington Raceway.

Foiled Again, sent off as the 3-5 favourite in the $220,000 tilt, won Monday’s main event in front-stepping fashion for the tandem of driver Yannick Gingras and trainer Ron Burke.

Gingras got away fourth from the rail with Foiled Again, but he had the veteran on the move in the backstretch. Bettors Edge swept to the early lead and had Foiled Again at his right flank as the field buzzed by the quarter pole in :26.3. Foiled Again muscled his way to the lead, however, and proceeded to fire the field to the half in :55.1.

He came under pressure in the third quarter from Clear Vision, and they raced as a team to the three-quarter pole in 1:23.1. Foiled Again edged away in the lane en route to the 1:50.2 score over Clear Vision, with Bettors Edge rallying to finish third.

“It seems like every year, he rewrites the record books,” said Gingras. “It was great to come out on top tonight.”

It was the sixth win of the season – and the 82nd lifetime tally – for the 10-year-old son of Dragon Again-In A Safe Place. The career winner of $6,646,600 is owned by Burke Racing Stable LLC, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and JJK Stables LLC.
