HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla . -   Merry Meadow made a triumphant return to south Florida while earning an automatic berth in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint in the process with a 1 3/4-length victory over Flutterby in the Grade 2 Princess Rooney  on Sunday at Gulfstream Park. The question now, for trainer Mark Hennig and his owners, William Parsons Jr. and David Howe, is whether they will accept the bid.
