Coastline shines in Street Sense S.
Sunday, October 27, 2013

Speightstown's 2-year-old son Coastline took the inaugural running of the $61,800 Street Sense S. by a widening three lengths Sunday at Churchill Downs (VIDEO). With Recepta's win in the $100,000 Chelsea Flower S. earlier in the day at Belmont Park, Speightstown brought his total number of 2013 stakes winners to 22.

Speightstown leads all sires this year by stakes winners, stakes wins (32), and repeat winners (73), and ranks second overall on the 2013 General Sire list, with $9.7 million in earnings.

Almost Famous set the early pace of :22.92 and :47.14 with Coastline putting pressure on the leader from the outside. The eventual winner gained a short lead with a furlong to go and drew clear under rider Shaun  Bridgmohan’s urging.

Coastline, an Oct. 5 maiden winner at Keeneland, ran one mile in 1:36.77 for trainer Mark Casse. The $37,979 winner’s share of the purse increased Coastline’s earnings to $80,779. Owned by John Oxley, Coastline was a $190,000 auction buy at the 2012 Keeneland September Yearling sale. He is out of Culinarly, winner of the Grade 3 Arlington-Washington Lassie S.

Norman Casse, who oversees his father’s Churchill Downs string, said the Grade 2, $175,000 Kentucky Jockey Club at 1 1/16 miles on Nov. 28 is an option for Coastline’s next start.
