Tepin Heads Field for Hillsborough at Tampa Bay Downs

The champion turf mare Tepin will be back at Tampa Bay Downs on Saturday as one of 10 entrants in the Hillsborough Stakes (Grade 2).
The Hillsborough is 1-1/8 miles on turf for fillies and mares 4-years-old and up. Tepin made her first 2016 start at Tampa Bay Downs on Feb. 13, winning the Endeavour Stakes (Grade 3) at 1 1/16 miles on turf.

Regular jockey Julien Leparoux will ride Tepin for trainer Mark Casse.  Last year Tepin won the Breeders' Cup Mile (Grade 1) at Keeneland in a field that included males.  She later was voted winner of the Eclipse Award for turf females.
