Our Closure won a very exciting race at Gulfstream Park on Saturday coming from far off the pace and then opening up at the wire to win easily by open daylight. Breaking from post 7 Our Closure rated off the pace three wide, circled five wide around the far turn, seized the lead nearing the eighth pole and readily drew off under a drive.
We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the race and Steve said, “I absolutely loved this filly when we claimed her and now you can see why. I’m going to run her back in the open company Allowance next time.”
We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “This was a gigantic win for the partners. We claimed this filly on July 13 for $12,500 and Steve wheeled her right back to this Allowance race. What’s icing on the cake is that the racetrack bumped purses by $10,000 because of their special stakes day today. So we ran for a bonus. The partner’s share of the win money pays for the horse outright and puts money in their pockets. This is a home run.”
Our Closure earned $38,120 for Saturday’s win.
We’ll see how Our Closure comes out of the race and we’ll point her accordingly.
Our Closure is entered to run in Saturday’s 9th race at Gulfstream Park which is an Allowance N1X for state-bred fillies and mares, three years old and up, which have never won a race other than Maiden, Claiming, or Starter or which have never won 2 races or optional claiming price of $16,000. She drew post position 8 and jockey Samy Camacho is named to ride. Camacho is currently ranked 5th in the Gulfstream Park jockey standings with 14 wins and a 15% winning percentage.
Our Closure is currently the 7-2 Daily Racing Form morning line third choice in the race. She’s the DRF Consensus third choice in the race. One DRF handicapper selects her as his second choice in the race and two DRF handicappers select her as their third choice in the race.
