BENSALEM — Close Hatches took the lead around the far turn and sprinted down the home stretch to win the $1 million Cotillion Stakes at Parx Racing on Saturday.


The win earned the three-year-old filly a possible start in the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Santa Anita in November.


The winner of Belmont Park’s $300,000 Mother Goose went postward in the field of nine fillies as the 8 to 5 favorite. After covering the 1 1/16 miles in 1 minute, 44 seconds, the Bob Baffert-trained horse returned $5.20, $3.00 and $2.60.


Will Take Charge, the winner of Saratoga’s $1 million Travers Stakes last month, overtook Moreno an eighth of a mile from home to win the co-featured $1 million Pennsylvania Derby by 2 1/2 lengths. The 2-to-1 choice in the field of seven three-year-old colts paid $6.60, $3.80 and $2.80.
