Legendary Horse Foiled Again to Celebrate His 20th Birthday Sat. May 11 at Shenandoah Downs

Legendary harness horse Foiled Again will celebrate his 20th birthday at Shenandoah Downs this Saturday May 11 in afternoon festivities that include a Happy Birthday singalong, free cake/cupcakes, and a Meet & Greet with the equine legend where fans can get their picture taken with him.  

Retired for six years now, the son of Dragon Again bankrolled over $7.6 million —the most ever by a standardbred horse — from a stellar career in which he won 109 races and scored 225 top-three finishes from 331 starts. Win number 104 of his illustrious career came at Shenandoah Downs on September 29, 2018. 

After that 2018 win, Foiled Again returned to Woodstock twice while retired including a 2019 appearance where Hall of Fame driver John Campbell put on his former racing colors and led Foiled Again for a lap around the half mile oval. The popular pacer also returned in 2022.

On Saturday, fans can also meet star harness driver Montrell Teague who piloted Foiled Again to victory number 105. Teague will be making his first appearance ever at Shenandoah Downs though it will be in a promotional capacity — instead of driving. 

Shenandoah Downs is located at I-81, Exit 283 halfway between Winchester and Harrisonburg in the northwest part of Virginia. Harness racing has taken place at the Shenandoah County Fairgrounds for 106 years.  More event details are at shenandoahdowns.com.
