Trainer Norm Casse Experiences His First Kentucky Oaks


America’s Best Racing followed rising star trainer Norm Casse as he prepared his stakes-winning filly Southlawn for the 149th Kentucky Oaks. A third-generation horseman, Casse reflects on growing up in Louisville, becoming a fan of horse racing, and deciding what he wanted to do for a career when watching Smarty Jones win the 2004 Kentucky Derby. While Southlawn had a rough trip in the Oaks and finished off the board, Casse says he is honored to participate in the historic race and to carry on his family’s tradition of success in the sport.
