YONKERS, NY, Tuesday, April 22, 2014-Foiled Again landed post position No. 3 for Yonkers Raceway's $567,000 final of the George Morton Levy Memorial Pacing Series Saturday night.

Harness racing's richest-ever pacer ($6,130,968) eyes a third Levy title, having won this event consecutively in 2009 and 2010. Foiled Again won his first four prelims legs this time around before finishing a non-factor sixth this past Saturday.

The 2014 final offers the highest purse in the history of the event-named for the Hall of Fame founder of Roosevelt Raceway--and serves as the richest North American race of the season to the date.

The Levy goes as the 11th of Yonkers' 12 races, with approximate post time of 10:55 PM.

Note P H Supercam/Mach it So race as a Bamond Racing owned-P J Fraley trained entry, while Foiled Again/Bettor's Edge race as a Ron Burke owned-trained entry, while Special Forces is the also eligible.

Also Saturday, the $371,400 final of the Blue Chip Matchmaker (race 9, approximate post 10:05 PM) goes as such...

1-Somwherovarainbow (Sears), 2-Yagonnakissmeornot (Dan Dube), 3-Rocklamation (Gingras), 4-Anndrovette (Tetrick), 5-Krispy Apple (Bartlett), 6-Feeling You (Tyler Buter), 7-Angel's Delight (Brennan), 8-Summertime Lea (Matt Kakaley).

A pair of series consolations, worth $100,000 (Levy) and $75,000 (Matchmaker), go as races 8 and 10, respectively.
