Pretty much everyone who knows Ken Weingartner in the harness racing business likes and respects him. At the same time, pretty much no one knows of the hidden talent he has been harboring for these many years. Weingartner, the award-winning Media Relations Manager at the U.S. Trotting Association, works tirelessly at publicizing and writing about Standardbred racing in his trademark easy-going, humble manner. He’s not the kind of guy one would ever expect to get on stage in front of a theatre full of people for an entire month. Yet that is exactly where Weingartner can be found throughout December as a member of the ensemble in the highly acclaimed version of “A Christmas Carol” at McCarter Theatre in Princeton, N.J.

Christmas evenings, many of us find ourselves in warm, bright houses, looking through frosted windowpanes into the darkness. If we pause, if we squint and look deeply, on the other side of the glass we see the faces of those who have traveled before us. For fleeting moments, we see aunts, uncles, friends, and parents who gently taught us lessons we may or may not have learned. In our sport, we see people who raced horses, who raised horses, and who wagered on the races. We see the shadows of racehorses great and small. Christmas is a time for telling stories about these people and these horses.
Woodbine Entertainment is set to welcome Foiled Again, the richest Standardbred of all-time, to Mohawk Park this Saturday (Dec. 22) for the penultimate stop on his farewell tour.
