Check Your Soul finished full of run to break his maiden on the grass at Keeneland on April 15, making up several lengths in the last quarter mile to get up by a nose on the wire (VIDEO).

A 3-year-old dark bay or brown colt by Perfect Soul, Check Your Soul was making his second lifetime start, this time on a turf course rated good. Going 1 1/16 miles, Check Your Soul was reserved in seventh for the better part of five furlongs. Under a crafty ride by Javier Castellano, he moved up three wide on the turn, then swung to the inside to start his rally in the stretch. Gobbling up the ground late, Check Your Soul timed it perfectly to win in 1:43.96. He earned a very good Beyer Speed Figure of 86 for the effort.

Check Your Soul is owned and bred by Charles Fipke, who also campaigned Perfect Soul prior to his stallion career at Darby Dan. Check Your Soul was raised at the historic central Kentucky farm.

The winner, who is trained by Roger Attfield, earned $26,400.
