Mountaineer: Freefourinternet wins


Freefourinternet ($9.40) got up in the final stride to score a head victory over 7-5 favorite La Reine's Terms in the $75,000 Labor Day Handicap.

Winless in five starts on the turf since winning the Grade 2 Kelso Breeders' Cup Handicap last October, Freefourinernet was making his first start since being transferred to the barn of Kentucky-based trainer Michael Maker. He covered a mile on firm turf in 1:34.13.

In the co-featured $75,000 Summer Finale Handicap for fillies and mares, Chance Dance ($3.60) won a three-horse photo with Passionate Bird and Tempus Fugit.

Chance Dance, ridden by Bobby Walker Jr., had lost a nose decision in her previous start, but this time got up between horses by a neck, running the mile in 1:34.09.
