Saratoga: Meese Rocks wins Union Avenue

Email

  Meese Rocks (7th, $8.80) pressed the pace outside favored La Concerto and Gold for the Queen, and drew clear in the stretch to win a sloppy renewal of the $70,000 Union Avenue as much the best.

  Trained by Eddie Barker, Meese Rocks ran six furlongs in 1:11.46 under Jorge Chavez, and was clear by 6 1/4 lengths at the finish. Gold for the Queen edged City Broad for second.

  Karakorum Fugitive finished fourth. La Concerto faded to fifth.
