Trainer Mark Casse was extremely pleased with champion mare Tepin's breeze at Churchill Downs Saturday morning. The 5-year-old daughter of Bernstein worked in company with 2-year-old Keep Quiet, the two covering a half mile in :48 2/5.
“I thought she worked extremely well,” Casse told bloodhorse.com. “We gave her a little company and she was on the bit and moving well. We wanted her to do a little something today, not a lot but a little, and I thought it was an 'A' work for sure.”
Tepin will look to defend her title in the Breeders' Cup Mile after an upset loss to Photo Call in Keeneland's First Lady in her last out; it was Tepin's first loss in eight starts, including several victories over males. Tepin is scheduled for another workout at Churchill Downs on Oct. 28, and she and the rest of Casse's Breeders' Cup string will ship to California on Oct. 31.
