The $200,000 Grade 2 Inside Information Stakes March 21 at Gulfstream Park features a field of six fillies and mares scheduled to sprint seven furlongs on the main track.
With the scratch of 3/1 second choice Sweet Whiskey, even-money favorite Merry Meadow figures to go to post at very short odds after winning the Grade 3 Sugar Swirl and Grade 3 Hurricane Bertie Stakes – both of which were run at Gulfstream – in her last two starts. The five year-old Henny Hughes mare has won 8 of 28 career starts for earnings of $693,550. Merry Meadow has been a model of consistency throughout her career, finishing off the board just five times. Javier Castellano has the mount breaking from post two.
Classic Point returns after stakes win
The Florida-bred Classic Point (7/2) won the Grade 2 Go for Wand Stakes November 28 at Aqueduct in her last start and returns from the layoff after a series of workouts at Palm Meadows Training Center for conditioner James Jerkens. The six year-old daughter of Flatter has posted seven victories in 30 career starts for earnings of over $548,000, and stands the best chance of toppling the favorite. Jockey Paco Lopez will ride breaking from post four.
Wolfson to run three
Trainer Martin Wolfson will saddle a trio of runners with Quiet Hour (20/1), Centrique (15/1) and Best Behavior (12/1) set to run as an uncoupled entry. 30/1 shot You Bough Her completes the field.
