CLOSE HATCHES BATTENS DOWN IN PREPARATION FOR THE KENTUCKY OAKS

Close Hatches breezed 4 furlongs in 47:80 at Churchill Downs on 21st April, turning in what was recorded as the second fastest work on the day - no small feat on a day that saw several Derby and Oaks contenders out in action. 

She is looking good as she prepares for the toughest challenge yet in her fledgling career.  Now 3 for 3 the FIRST DEFENCE filly has improved at each asking and looks ready for a dual at the Downs.  See for yourself by watching the video of the work below!
