Casse, Husbands in Kentucky

It's beginning to look more likely that Woodbine trainer Mark Casse and jockey Patrick Husbands will not only be involved in the Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs but also the May 6 Kentucky Derby.
Seaside Retreat, who is number 19 of an allowed 20 horses on the earnings list for possible starters, is already at Churchill.
Since Casse will saddle Robert Wilson's Top Notch Lady in the Oaks, with his main rider Husbands in the tack, Seaside Retreat will probably get a start in the Derby.
Casse has said that the son of King Cugat did nt handle the Keeneland surface in his last start when beaten almost 30 lengths by Sinister Minister.
Seaside Retreat was one of Canada's better 2-year-olds of 2005 but as an American-bred, is not eligible for the Queen's Plate.
