Casse points two to Sam F. Davis Stakes


OLDSMAR, Fla. – Classic Empire and Tepin were the biggest names nominated to the graded stakes races at Tampa Bay Downs on Feb. 11, but it’s possible that neither Eclipse Award winner will run here that day. Trainer Mark Casse reiterated Monday that Classic Empire is scheduled to make his 3-year-old debut Saturday in the Grade 2 Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream Park and said that Tepin is only “50/50” to run here Feb. 11 after having a workout postponed due to wet weather in south Florida.
