Trainer Mark Hennig (Merry Meadow): "This wasn't the trip I was expecting. I thought R Free Roll and Flutterby would go and we could be sitting. I was afraid we wouldn't get by her (Flutterby). That horse is good right now. But I think (Merry Meadow), when she's fresh and you run her three-quarters, she's double tough. We had talked about this race for awhile, that's why we stayed here for the Inside Information (March 21). I could give her a long break after that and send her up to my dad at Payson Park, let her freshen there, and get her back down here in a rested state. 

 
(On the Inside Information) "Seven-eighths isn't her best distance especially if you take her out of her game. She'd rather not be the one having to chase the pace. Last time she kind of just got caught up in the battle early and Javier, to his credit, didn't beat her up."
 
Jockey Javier Castellano (Merry Meadow): "It was a perfect trip. She was sharp, fresh, and a front running horse. She wanted to race so I let her do what she wanted today. It feels excellent to win three straight wins, and I love Gulfstream Park. It's very exciting."
 
Jockey Luca Panici (Flutterby): “No excuse, no complaints. She ran huge. She ran great. She kicked in when [Merry Meadow] came to me. She tried hard. I don’t have a complaint.”
