Snap Decision wins the Jonathan Kiser Novice Stakes

SARATOGA, N.Y.--Bruton Street-US' Snap Decision, trained by Jack Fisher, used his flat speed to easily move to the lead in the stretch of the Jonathan Kiser Novice Stakes and coasted to a 1 1/2 length lead over Hudson River Farm's Galway Bay, trained by Jonathan Sheppard.

Silverton Hill LLC's Bodes Well, trained by Leslie Young, went to the lead right from the start, stalked most of the way by Galway Bay.

The field drew down to six after the saddle slipped on City Dreamer, also trained by Fisher, on the backside first time around the 2 1/16 mile course, and he was pulled up.

Snap Decision, who was stakes placed on the flat for his breeder, Phipps Stable,  began to make his move after the last fence, and, using his flat speed, caught  Bodes Well about a furlong from the finish and was geared down to coast to an easy victory.

Galway Bay, under a hard drive, caught Bodes Well at the end to place second, with Bodes Well third,

Irv Naylor's Family Tree, trained by Neil Morris, was fourth over Belisarius, trained by Leslie Young, and Zanzi Win, trained by Ricky Hendriks.
