Glad to hear Tepin is coming back, but the Dubai Turf is one of the toughest races in the world. It'll be a tall task.

All of this does increase the likelihood we get a Tepin vs Lady Eli showdown at some point in 2017 too.

Tepin won't run Saturday but is NOT retired
Two-time champion mare TEPIN had a touch of colic yesterday at her Palm Meadows training base and had to be treated for it, eliminating her from consideration for what trainer Mark Casse had planned to be her 6yo debut, the G3 Endeavour Stakes on Saturday at Tampa Bay Downs.

We'll have full details up soon on http://www.drf.com, but Casse emphasized that the mare is fine and should be able to return to training soon to point for other races. "We definitely intend to run her this year," he said. "Whether this means we'll miss going to Dubai, I don't know. Regardless, there are plenty of other races for her this year."

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Mark Casse didn't have the best weekend, did he? First his two-year-old champ has a meltdown before the Holy Bull, and then his star mare has a bout of colic, which is always scary for a trainer, not matter how minor the colic turns out to be. :(

Best read from the bottom up.

David Grening‏ @DRFGrening 34m34 minutes ago

Casse said he will talk to owner Robert Masterson about Tepin's future.

David Grening‏ @DRFGrening 34m34 minutes ago

Mark Casse said Tepin is in heat and didn't want to go. "We're not going to make her do something she doesn't want to do," he said.

David Grening‏ @DRFGrening 1h1 hour ago

Tepin will not breeze.

David Grening‏ @DRFGrening 1h1 hour ago

Tepin, thus far, is not agreeable to working. Leparoux continues to try and coax her.

Tepin, Leparoux up, about to breeze at Palm Meadows

Saw that and thought similar to Classic Empire not wanting to work there. Bet he cannot wait to get his string to Churchill!

The fact that she was in heat kind of puts things in perspective. She'll probably be fine when her hormones settle down. ;)

Yes, since that happened before when Tepin was in season. Mares!

Poor Casse can't catch a break. It's starting to sound like a Dick Francis novel lol. :lol: At least Tepin isn't working with a divisional deadline.

What on earth is going on??? The one common thing that I do see (aside from the trainer) is Leparoux. So, put a different jockey on them and see whether that gets things back to normal.

Or, horses sometimes simply do not want to work. And as was mentioned in the article, she is in heat and plenty of low profile horses refuse to work every day. I highly doubt the horses don't want to work simply because Leparoux (aka Tepin's usual jockey) is on their backs.

There's a good reason some people avoid mares. A mare in season can be a downright bitch. Or even not in season. They're... moody. Regumate and move along, lol.

I think Classic Empire is just a headcase and the two are in no way related except they're in the same barn.

Like someone else said - cheaper horses do this all the time. It's just 2 champions from the same barn is a coincidence...and a news story?
Tepin usually acts so professional, and her acting badly could be her way of signaling she's done racing?
As for Classic Empire, he pulls weird stuff all the time.

The younger Casse loves bragging about the bad actors in the barn - he's done it with Kaigun,Noble Bird, and with Danzig Moon.

When they are in heat, mares are fruitcakes. Some try to kick somebody 3 stalls away. Some try to sit in your lap. Some think they are carnivores. Some want to eat daffodils.
Some do all of the above at one time.
Come on guys, think of your wives.

Didn't they stop on Tepin last summer because he didn't like the way she was training? I don't think this is new to her. . .

They squeezed the lemon pretty hard last year. Might be the end of the line for her. If she's not dragging the jock to the track in the morning eager to train, make a date with Tapit and let her enjoy herself as a mommy.
