Mark E. Casse

Born in Indianapolis, Casse has been a premier fixture all over North America. He is well established in Canada and has won the country’s Sovereign Award as the top trainer north of the border six times. He has been dominant at Woodbine Race Track in Toronto, Canada, most notably claiming 119 victories in 2011 which doubled the runner up behind him. Casse enjoyed a breakout season in 2015, culminating in wins by Tepin at the Breeders’ Cup Mile and Catch A Glimpse at the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf. Though he has been a trainer since 1979, Casse did not become an established force at the top of his field until 2011. He has over 2,000 wins to his credit. Other top horses include Spring in the Air, Spring Venture, Lexie Lou, Uncaptured, Pool Play, Seaside Retreat, Marchfield, Northern Passion, Exciting Story, Top Notch Lady and Prospective. He prepped Airoforce for a run in the 2016 Kentucky Derby.
