Masterton said he was offering the two-time champion by Bernstein from the Stravinsky mare Life Happened as he is not involved in breeding.

“My interest and my love of the sport lies in racing, and my family and I have decided to sell her because we wanted her breeding career to be nurtured by someone who loves that aspect of the business,” said Masterson.


Kentucky-bred Tepin earned her first Eclipse Award as champion US turf mare in 2015 after a trio of G1 wins.

Kicking off that term with victories in the GII Churchill Distaff Turf Mile and the GI Longines Just a Game S., the Mark Casse pupil missed by a nose to Hard Not to Like (Hard Spun) in that term’s GI Diana S. and came up just a head short to multiple Chilean champion Dacita (Chi) (Scat Daddy) in the GII Ballston Spa S. Returning to winning ways with a dominant seven-length score in Keeneland’s GI First Lady S., the then 4-year-old Tepin dazzled fans in Lexington again next out with a decisive score over 2016 GI Arlington Million hero Mondialiste (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) in the GI Breeders’ Cup Mile.

He added another four G1 wins in 2016 including her trip to Royal Ascot where she won the prestigious G1 Queen Anne Stakes.

Tepin, trained by Mark Casse, was retired this past April when her connections felt she had lost interest in racing and was bred to Curlin.

A $140,00 graduate of the 2011 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Yearling Sale, Tepin retiredwith a record of 23-13-5-1 and earnings of $4,437,918.

“I have trained some Breeders’ Cup winners and champions, but there is no doubt this is the best horse I ever trained,” Casse said.

“She was first or second in her final 15 starts, 11 of those wins. We never ducked anyone and we are proud she went out on top.”

Tepin will be part of the first Fasig-Tipton November consignment for Elite Sales.
