Monday, 28th August 2017

At Saratoga racecourse in the US, 3YO bay colt West Coast (Flatter-Caressing, by Honour And Glory) claimed his maiden Gr1 success when scoring a front-running 3.25 length win for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert in the Gr1 Travers Stakes (10 furlongs) for 3YOs, defeating Gunnevera & Irap. A US$425,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase out of champion filly Caressing, winner of the 2000 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, West Coast advanced his impressive record to 5 wins (including the Gr3 Los Alamitos Derby) and 2 placings from 7 starts for US$993,800 in earnings.
