Harness racing's $100,000 (est.) Battle Of Lake Erie is set for Saturday, July 21.

Since its inception in 1986, it has drawn the best veteran pacers the sport has to offer. Past Battle Champions include racing greats Falcon Seelster, Quite A Sensation. Jaguar Spur, Dorunrun Bluegrass, Cambest, Riyadh, Gallo Blue Chip, Maltese Artist and Foiled Again.

Foiled Again could become the first horse in Northfield Park history to win the Battle of Lake Erie three times. The eight-year-old son of Dragon Again (2000 Battle Champion) won the event in 2009 and 2011, joining Jaguar Spur (winner in 1988-89), Peruvian Hanover (winner in 2002-03) and Maltese Artist (winner in 2005 and 2007) as the only four horses to win the Battle of Lake Erie twice.

The twenty horses sustained to the 2012 Battle of Lake Erie have combined earnings of more than $12,500,000, winning 290 races. Two millionaires, Aracache Hanover and Foiled Again, are among the eligibles.
