Foiled Again is looking for his third win in the G.M. Levy Series final at Yonkers.
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 date.
