A bay daughter of Yes It’s True out of the Hook and Ladder mare Noble Fire, La Verdad was bred in New York.

Campaigned by Lady Sheila Stable and trained by Linda Rice, La Verdad broke her maiden in her second career start on April 7, 2013 at Aqueduct. She won her next four races — all allowance optional claiming events — before advancing into stakes company. She finished second in her first stakes try in the Grade 2 Barbara Fritchie Handicap at Laurel Park in February of 2014. La Verdad then won four consecutive stakes races: the Broadway Stakes, Distaff Handicap (Grade 2), Critical Eye Stakes and the Dancin Renee Stakes.
She added a victory in the Iroquois Stakes later in the year. In 2015, La Verdad won the Eclipse Award for Champion Female Sprinter. Her victories included the Distaff Handicap (Grade 2), Vagrancy Handicap (Grade 3), Dancin Renee Stakes, Gallant Bloom Handicap (Grade 2) and Iroquois Stakes. She also finished second in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint. La Verdad won her 11 th and final career stakes race in January of 2016 in the Interborough Stakes. She was retired with a career record of 16-3- 0 from 25 starts and earnings of $1,563,200. La Verdad is in foal to Tapit at Edition Farm in Hyde Park, N.Y.
