Top turf racemare Tepin won more than a few major races; with victories stretching from the Breeders’ Cup in Kentucky to Royal Ascot in England and back across the pond to Canada. The global superstar was retired on April 18, so let's take a look back at her career by the numbers.

1 mile – Tepin’s preferred distance, on the turf. She won seven of her 10 starts at a mile on the grass and finished second three times.

1:34.12 – The fastest time Tepin won going a mile on the turf, when she prevailed in the 2015 Churchill Distaff Turf Mile. Her 2016 Ricoh Woodbine Mile win was just .01 seconds off that time, and she ran faster than that time when second by a half-length in the 2016 Breeders' Cup Mile to Tourist, who completed the distance in 1:31.71.

2 – The number of times Tepin has finished worse than second when racing on the turf.
