R Free Roll wires Honorable Miss Handicap


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Trainer Danny Gargan and his owner, Richard Averill, knew the only way to beat the 6-5 La Verdad in Monday’s $200,000 Honorable Miss Handicap at a soggy Saratoga was to take the race right to the speedy favorite. And that strategy paid big dividends after their Florida invader R Free Roll sprinted to a 1 1/4-length, wire-to-wire victory in the Grade 2 dash for older fillies and mares.
