One day after the news came in that the Queen of Turf, Tepin was retired from racing, I knew a visit to the barn of Mark Casse and Norman Casse, was job one. As you can imagine, it's a bittersweet time there, but it was great to be around Tepin once again.

Watch now as Norm discusses the two-time champion, and everything that she meant to the barn. He also talks about exciting plans for their next turf star in the recent stakes winner, La Coronel.

While today was rightfully about Tepin, we cannot forget about the Kentucky Derby. Team Casse has yet to win the Derby, but in Classic Empire and State of Honor, they are very confident in the hand they were dealt in 2017.

Enjoy the interview, but of course, it is Tepin who steals the show!
