R Free Roll wins Honorable Miss at Saratoga

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — R Free Roll took an early lead on a sloppy track and went on to win the $200,000 Grade 2 Honorable Miss Handicap by 1 1/4 lengths on a rainy Monday at Saratoga Race Course.

Making her 17th start but just the second outside of her native Florida, the 4-year-old daughter of Rockport Harbor was never challenged under jockey Paco Lopez. She finished the six furlongs in 1:10.12.

R Free Roll paid $15, $5.80 and $5.10, and the $120,000 winner's share of the purse increased her career earnings to $495,854.

My Wandy's Girl paid $5.50 and $4.30 for second, with Merry Meadow returning $4.70 for third. Speedinthruthecity, 6-5 favorite La Verdad and Calistoga completed the order of finish.
