NEW YORK (AP) - La Verdad was the easy winner of the $100,000 Broadway Stakes for New York-bred fillies and mares Saturday at rainy Aqueduct.

The consistent 4-year-old trained by Linda Rice won for the sixth time in eight races. The 4-5 favorite, La Verdad grabbed the early lead and was never menaced to earn her first stakes victory.

Jose Ortiz, the rider in every start, guided her to a 3┬╝-length victory over Hot Rendezvous.

The time was 1:11.55 for the six furlongs in the slop.

La Verdad paid $3.60, $2.50 and $2.10. Hot Rendezvous returned $7.30 and $3.90 while Sunny Desert, last year’s winner of the Broadway, paid $3.10 to show.
