Foiled Again could become the first horse in Northfield Park history to win the Battle of Lake Erie three times. The 8-year-old son of Dragon Again, the 2000 Battle winner, won the event in 2009 and 2011, joining Jaguar Spur, the winner in 1988 and 1989, Peruvian Hanover, the winner in 2002 and 2003 and Maltese Artist, the winner in 2005 and 2007, as the only four horses to win the Battle of Lake Erie twice.
The 20 horses sustained to the 2012 Battle of Lake Erie have combined earnings of more than $12.5 million and have won 290 races. Two millionaires, Aracache Hanover and Foiled Again, are among the eligibles.
