Notes: West Coast got a late start, breaking his maiden in March of 2017 at Santa Anita in his second start. He shipped to Keeneland to finish 2nd in the Lexington (G3) then back to Santa Anita to win an allowance and back to Belmont Park to win the Easy Goer on Belmont Stakes day. It was back to California at Los Alamitos to win the Los Alamitos Derby (G3) then to Saratoga to win the Travers (G1). His final prep was a win in the Pennsylvania Derby (G1) at Parx Racing. He should be very comfortable on planes with all that shuttling back and forth across the country!
