Closing Remarks Dazzles in Santa Anita Allowance

Arcadia, CA (January 17, 2022) – Closing Remarks returned to her favored surface and was much the best in the 5th race at Santa Anita, an $82,920 allowance going nine furlongs over firm, yet slightly dampened by rain, turf course.

The Harris Farms homebred daughter of Vronsky rated well off the early pace for the first three-quarters of a mile. She circled the field around the turn and was on even terms with the leaders at the top of the stretch. Asked for another gear, she complied with jockey Joe Bravo’s request and drew away with authority, winning while geared down in the final sixteenth by two and one-quarter lengths. The margin could easily have been twice that.

Closing Remarks has won or placed in 8 of her twelve starts, with a stakes win and three graded stakes-placing. Her career earnings stand at $347,320. Produced by the Unusual Heat mare, Orange Cove, she is trained by Carla Gaines.
