More Hardware For Snyder, Grange


Winning O’Brien Awards is something that owners Jeff Snyder and Lothlorien's Sue Grange have done plenty of during their tenure in the harness racing industry, and on Saturday night they'll be adding to their collection

thanks to the exploits of the multi-talented three-year-old pacing colt Well Said.

Snyder and Grange’s Well Said enjoyed a breathtaking sophomore campaign which saw him assemble a 10-0-1 record and bank just over $2 million in just 14 trips behind the starting gate. He took his 1:47.3 speed badge at the Meadowlands in the $1 million final of the Meadowlands Pace after setting the track record at Mohawk Racetrack just three weeks earlier when he blazed over the Campbellville, ON oval in 1:48.1 in the $1.5 million final of the Pepsi North America Cup.

The son of Artsplace-Must see also registered victories in the $500,000 Battle of the Brandywine, the $136,153 Simcoe Stakes and a straight-heats sweep of the Little Brown Jug in Delaware, Ohio.

At the conclusion of his award-winning season, Well Said joined the star-studded roster of stallions at Hanover Shoe Farms’ famed nursery in Hanover, Pennsylvania. He stands for a service fee of $15,000.

Well Said along with the Bulletproof Enterprises’ If I Can Dream were finalists in the Three-Year-Old Colt Pacer of the Year category until an announcement was made on Friday by the O’Brien Award Committee as a direct result of a ruling released by the Ontario Racing Commission on Thursday which resulted in the immediate suspension of Bulletproof Enterprises.
