Keertana tackles males in Louisville

Multiple Grade 3 queen Keertana will take on boys for the first time in her 25-race career when she lines up in the gate of Saturday's $100,000 Grade 3 Louisville at Churchill Downs. The dark bay mare will break from post 4 under jockey Jose Lezcano in the field of 10 while going 1 1/2 miles in her second straight race.

The Tom Proctor trainee first tried 12 furlongs on April 28 at Keeneland, where she pulled off a 1 1/4-length victory in the Grade 3 Bewitch over yielding ground. The five-year-old has plenty of experience winning on firm turf as well, taking Grade 3 The Very One at Gulfstream in February and last year's Grade 3 Glens Falls at Saratoga, and loves the Matt Winn Turf Course. She just missed by a half-length when third in last year's Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf under the Twin Spires, and also placed third in the Grade 3 Mint Julep last June.

Keertana has captured three of her four starts this season, with her only loss once again coming as a third, this time in the Grade 3 Hillsborough at Tampa Bay Downs in March. She'll tote the second highest weight in the Louisville field when Lezcano weighs in at 117 pounds.
