Team Casse Donates TEPIN Halter to Woodbine Cares Handicapping Contest

Charitable Wager: 2017 Woodbine Cares Contest

Team Casse has donated one of TEPIN’s halters to be offered as a prize to the winner of Charitable Wager’s Woodbine Cares charity handicapping contest. On Saturday, September 16th, CharitableWager.com will conduct the next edition of a “Winner Gives All” handicapping contest coinciding with the Woodbine Mile. TEPIN, conditioned by Canadian Hall of Fame trainer Mark Casse, was named the American Champion Female Turf Horse of 2015 and 2016. Millionaire TEPIN won 13 races from 23 starts. The 2015 Breeders’ Cup Mile victor won eleven stakes races on two continents and in three countries.

In Chartiable Wager’s ‘Winner Gives All’ contests, no monies trade hands between the contest organizers or any contestants. Donations are made on the honor system. 100% of donation pool goes to the winners’ charities. Each contest winner chooses from a list of contest designated charities. The Winner Gives All.

TEPIN’s last career win was the 2016 Ricoh Woodbine Mile. This year’s edition of the Woodbine Mile headlines Woodbine’s multiple graded stakes weekend of September 16th and 17th. While the races have not been drawn, the contest menu will be the entirety of Woodbine Mile racing program including four graded stakes races:

  • Breeders’ Cup Win & You’re In™ – Ricoh Woodbine Mile (Grade I)
  • Northern Dancer Turf (Grade I)
  • Canadian Stakes (Grade II)
  • Bold Venture Stakes (Grade III)

Contestants in the 2017 Woodbine Cares Contest will choose from the Woodbine Cares approved charities for which to play. Woodbine Entertainment Group has agreed to seed the Donation Pool with $100 donation to charity selected by the contest winner. In addition to selecting the recipient of the complete Donation Pool, the winner of the Woodbine Cares handicapping contest will also receive one of TEPIN’s halters (pictured below).
