Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott reported Sunday morning that Close Hatches, winner of the highly anticipated Grade 1 Ogden Phipps showdown with Princess of Sylmar and favored Beholder, came out of her effort in fine fettle, as did Seek Again, who was third in the Grade 1 Manhattan.

"No concerns or issues," said Mott.

The trainer also indicated Matuszak was "good" this morning after being eased in the stretch during the final stage of the Belmont.

"Matuszak is good," Mott said. "There was nothing much to think about; we were never a factor."
