Saratoga: Keertana wins the Glens Falls


  Slipping through on the inside in the stretch, Keertana (10th, $12.80) caught Casablanca Smile in midstretch and pulled away to win the Grade 3 $100,000 Glens Falls Stakes by 3 1/4 lengths under Jose Lezcano.

  Casablanca Smile took over from Go Ask Alex on the third and final turn, drew clear once straightened away into the lane, and held on to be a clear second over odds-on favorite Forever Together.

  Trained by Tom Proctor, Keertana ran 1 3/8 miles in 2:21.73 on a very firm inner turf course.
