ETOBICOKE, Ontario — Mark Casse broke the Woodbine record for most training wins in a year when he sent out Masked Maiden  to capture Saturday’s 10th race.

Masked Maiden made her way through traffic in the stretch under Omar Moreno to prevail by a nose, giving Casse his 90th win at the meet. The late Frank Passero Jr. set the previous record in 1995.

“Any time you can do something that nobody’s ever done, that’s special,” said Casse. “And to win more races than anybody’s ever done is quite an achievement for me. This is my home, and I’m very proud of what Woodbine’s become.”
