Breeder's Cup Trainer Talk w Richard Baltas and Norman Casse
October 26, 2017
Hosted by Mike Abadir with Co-Host Gino Buccola
In this week's edition of The Mike Abadir Show, trainers from two of horse racing's most prominent stables will join Mike and Gino to discuss their Breeder's Cup prospects. The first of our trainer guests is Richard Baltas, who is based in Southern California, and who just won the trainer's title at the prestigious Del Mar summer meet. We will also feature a guest from another powerhouse barn, and that is Norman Casse, who is with Casse Stables. They have a major presence in several major racing circuits, including Woodbine (Toronto, Canada, area), as well as stateside at Gulfstream Park, and in the Kentucky circuit. Each of these trainers has won numerous world class races and participated in horse racing's Super Bowl, the annually conducted Breeder's Cup Championships (which will be run for the first time at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club on Nov. 3rd & 4th). We will discuss their top contenders, and explore the preparation each stable puts into their world class athletes.
