Coastline is a Speightstown and Culinary who finished third by a head in the G3 Spiral at Turfway Park in late March. He'll need more points if he hopes to run in the Kentucky Derby and his connections are currently targeting the Blue Grass for his next race. He put in his final major work for the Blue Grass this Saturday by working five furlongs in company in 1:00.40.

"It was a nice, easy work without much gallop out, which is what we normally do," Casse said. "I thought it was good; just what the doctor ordered."

He'll face bigger competition in the Blue Grass, but he is definitely a horse to watch.
