Norm Casse Takes Aim On First Stakes Victory With Angel Of Mischief

Trainer Norm Casse is closing in on his first year as a trainer with 14 victories but the 35-year-old Louisville-native hopes improving filly Angel of Mischief can give him his first stakes victory in the $200,000 Mrs. Revere (Grade II) on Friday, Nov. 23 at Churchill Downs.

“This is going to be the most logical spot to run her in,” Casse said. “This filly is still a little green but her talent is there. We added blinkers for her second and third starts and it’s really helped her.”

Owned by Glencrest Farm and Hold Your Horses Inc., Angel of Mischief sports a two-race win streak after breaking her maiden on Sept. 8 at Kentucky Downs and winning a first-level allowance race at Keeneland on Oct. 11.

Casse, who began training on his own in early 2017 following a long stint as an assistant to his father Mark, has won nearly 20 percent of his starts and recently started Belle Laura in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf.

“I came into the year with a goal of winning 10 races and so far we’ve won 14,” Casse said. “It’s been a good year. Churchill Downs is my home track so it was very special to run Belle Laura in the Breeders’ Cup.”

Casse, based in Barn 41 at Churchill Downs, is slated to close out the Fall Meet in Kentucky before shipping his horses to Palm Meadows in South Florida for the winter.
