La Verdad takes down champ in Honorable Miss


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – The much-anticipated duel between the reigning sprint champion Judy the Beauty and the New York-bred millionaire La Verdad developed early but lasted for little more than three-eighths of a mile in Wednesday’s $200,000 Honorable Miss Handicap. That’s about how far it took for La Verdad to shake off the champ en route to a convincing four-length victory in the Grade 2 dash for older fillies and mares.
