Notes: Tepin has never been bad, but she really bloomed at age 4 on the turf. She won the Delta Princess Stakes (G3) as a 2-year-old but went winless as a 3-year-old in 4 starts but did finish 2nd in the San Clemente Handicap (G2) at Del Mar. Her 4-year-old debut was an allowance win at Gulfstream Park but hasn't run in ungraded company since. She won the Churchill Distaff Turf Mile (G2) and Just a Game (G1) at Belmont then was 2nd in the Diana (G1) and Ballston Spa (G2) at Saratoga and hasn't lost since. She is currently on an 8 race win streak that includes: First Lady (G1) and Breeders' Cup Mile (G1) at Keeneland, Endevour (G3) and Hillsborough (G2) at Tampa Bay Downs, Jenny Wiley (G1) at Keeneland, Churchill Distaff Turf Mile (G2), Queen Anne (G1) at Royal Ascot, and the Woodbine Mile (G1). For her final prep, she finished 2nd to Photo Call in the First Lady (G1) at Keeneland. Hopefully she can bounce back at Santa Anita. She is called "Queen of the Turf" for a very good reason, and has a very good chance to be the next repeat winner of the Breeders' Cup Mile after Miesque, Lure, Da Hoss, Goldikova, and Wise Dan.
