Fed Biz colt runs to the money at Saratoga
Sunday, August 25, 2019
Front Run the Fed won Sunday's $100,000 Better Talk Now S. at Saratoga in the first black type start for the 3-year-old Fed Biz colt, who scored a 13-length allowance win in his most recent start before Sunday.

Stretching out to a mile for the first time, Front Run the Fed was last of six for the first five furlongs before kicking into gear. He swiftly reached contention with a bold four-wide move, then out-footed Bourbon War to the wire, winning by a half-length in a solid 1:34.29 on the firm turf.

“He had a bit of an eventful trip early,” said winning trainer Chad Brown of the colt's journey. “He was pinched back on the first turn and was further back than I would have liked. (Jockey) Jose (Lezcano) had to go to Plan B and showed good judgment letting the horse settle down first. He composed himself and decided to make one run with him and it paid off.”

Front Run the Fed, out of Lawless Miss, is a full brother to the unraced juvenile Biz Smarts. The winner was bred by Colts Neck Stables and is owned by Klaravich Stables. He sold for $300,000 at the Keeneland September Yearling sale.

Fed Biz, a top-10 sire with his first crop in 2018, is in a similar position this year with nearly $1.9 million in progeny earnings and now eight stakes horses to date.
