Maryquitecontrary Extends Win Streak To Five In Gulfsteam’s Inside Information

Maryquitecontrary added to her growing reputation Saturday, extending her win streak to five and picking up her first graded stakes victory in the Inside Information (G2) at Gulfstream Park.

The Inside Information was the first graded stakes victory for veteran trainer Joseph Catanese III.

The $200,000 Inside Information was the second of seven graded stakes on the 13-race blockbuster Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) program that includes the $1 million Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational (G1) and the $500,000 TAA Pegasus World Cup Filly & Mare Turf Invitational (G3).

With a strong off-the-pace run from far back under jockey Luca Panici, Maryquitecontrary took the lead at the sixteenths pole and won the seven-furlong race for older fillies and mares by 2 ½ lengths over Colorful Mischief. Fire On Time, who had set much of the pace, was third.

The early fractions of :22.41 and :45.38 for a half mile suited the Maryquitecontrary’s running style. She was on the move entering the turn and, racing wide in the stretch, easily made the lead. She finished the trip in 1:23.64 on a fast track.

Sent off at 5-2, Maryquitecontrary paid $7.20. Odds-on favorite Obligatory, a four-time graded stakes winner, was never a factor in the Inside Information and finished sixth in the field of 10.

Bred and owned by Rodney G. Lundock, Florida-bred Maryquitecontrary is a 4-year-old by First Dude out of the Mecke mare Mary Kate ‘n Kelly.

Inside Information (G2) Stakes Quotes

Winning trainer Joseph Catanese III (Maryquitecontrary): “She keeps getting better and better. She’s a pleasure. We’ll keep finding races for her here.”

Winning jockey Luca Panici (Maryquitecontrary): “I was squeezed after the break. She was a little bit nervous and I lost a half-length after the break but they were running in front and I was sitting confident like always with her. When I got to the clear she started to kick, and she kicked until the end. She’s improving race after race, and today she showed what she can do.”
