Tepin To Race At Keeneland Prior To The Breeders’ Cup

Champion Tepin will most likely make one start at Keeneland next month as she prepares for the defense of her G1 Breeders’ Cup Mile title.

The Daily Racing Form reports that the Mark Casse-trained mare came out of her win in the G1 Ricoh Woodbine Mile a “little tired but in good condition”.

Tepin left Woodbine on Monday and was on her way back to Saratoga. She will remain at the Spa for about another week, when she will ship to Keeneland once the September Yearling sale is completed.

Trainer Mark Casse confirmed that Tepin will race once at Keeneland, either in the G1 First Lady or the G1 Shadwell Turf Mile.

“She’s gotten so smart, she puts very little into her training, and that makes it difficult,” Casse told the Form. “We find it’s much easier to just run her because she gets so much more out of it. For her to have her best chance of winning the Breeders’ Cup Mile, she probably needs to run again.”
