Close Hatches, quickly grabbed the lead on the clubhouse turn and then rolled off some early blistering factions of :23 flat and :46.3 in the first 2 panels to go on to a very muddy, but multiple 5 lengths win in today’s $500,000, GI Personal Ensign Stakes, for 3yo and up F/M’s, going 1 1/8 mile over a very muddy Saratoga main track.
2nd – to Fiftyshadesofhay, who did try to stay in range late, but couldn’t, did helped fill out a nice exacta for you!
3rd – to Stanwyck, who was mildly closing late
4th – to Antipathy, who was on the extreme early engine here today but settling for the super filled spot!
