Description: Close Hatches (KY) DK B/, F, foaled January 31, 2010 (First Defence - Rising Tornado, by Storm Cat) broke alertly and was virtually gone from the onset to win the 1 1/16 miles $600K Grade I Apple Blossom Handicap at Oaklawn Park April 11, 2014. Jockey Joel Rosario had a chance to let her relax down the back stretch and when On Fire Baby even thought about getting after her, Close Hatches simply strode away. She was too good for this field today as she won easily. On Fire Baby was second by 1 1/4 lengths. It was 1 length further back to Stanwyck in 3rd. Close Hatches has been a gem of consistency on the racetrack; her record is 7-2-0 from 10 starts and she has earned $1,847,300. She was bred by Millsec, LTD. Close Hatches is owned by Juddmonte Farms, Inc. and she is being trained by William Mott. Drawing by Daily Racing Funnies ®.
