Mark Casse


Mark became involved in racing through his father, Norman, a veteran owner, trainer and breeder for over 40 years, and the former chairman of the Ocala Breeders Sales. He took out his trainer's license at age 18 and won his first race in 1979 at Keeneland. Casse has won the Sovereign Award as Canada's top trainer seven times (2006-2008, 2011-2014) and trained many Sovereign Award winners including Sealy Hill, the only filly to capture the Canadian Filly Triple Crown; and 2014 Queen's Plate winner and Canadian Horse of the Year Lexie Lou. Other top horses include Spring in the Air, Spring Venture, Uncaptured, Pool Play, Seaside Retreat, Marchfield, Northern Passion, Exciting Story, Top Notch Lady and Prospective.

Conquest Stables LLC


Conquest Stables was born of the excitement that Ernie Semersky and Dory Newell experienced at their first trip to the Kentucky Derby in 2012. The Highland Park, Illinois couple were so drawn to the sport that they purchased their first Thoroughbred only weeks after their first Run for the Roses. In 2013 Conquest invested in more bloodstock, and with their trainer embarked on a program that produced several stakes winners and two juvenile Breeders’ Cup runners including 2014 Kentucky Derby contender, Conquest Titan.
