Pedigree experts Bill Oppenheim and Dr. Emily Plant have devised a 9-point scale to predict sire success. Only nine sires since 1996 have scored 9/9 on this scale, of which eight have become very successful sires. West Coast joins an elite group including A.P. Indy, Bernardini, Dixie Union, Empire Maker, Galileo, Giant’s Causeway, Montjeu and Sea The Stars.
Champion Three-Year Old in 2017, West Coast won the Travers S. (G1) and Pennsylvania Derby (G1). He placed second in both the Pegasus World Cup (G1) and Dubai World Cup (G1), also placing third in the Breeders' Cup Classic (G1). His first foals are on the ground.
“We think West Coast has all the traits necessary to make a very successful sire; for us he is a huge bargain at $35,000” – Bill Oppenheim
