Cotolo’s Harness Review, News And Notes
With his win in the Canadian Pacing Derby, Foiled Again became the richest pacer in history. His winning share of the event earned him enough to balloon his earnings to $4.3 million. He did it in less than six seasons. It’s another feather in the cap of trainer Ron Burke, who kept the stalwart pacer strong through each season. He was a longshot in this field for many reasons, one because he had a poor win record thus far this season and was up against some powerful recency.
Drop The Ball, now four, met her usual pacing-mare contestants at Philadephia on the last day in August, only this time she went faster than she ever won before. Her 1:48.4 win made her the fastest four-year-old pacing mare in the history of the sport. It was only a Mares Open Pace but she did most of the speedy work alone. It was her fourth win of the season.
