Coasted to Try to Add to Turf Success

Coasted will start in Miss Grillo Stakes (gr. IIIT) Oct. 2 at Belmont Park.

Impressive in her two grass starts, including a clear victory in the P. G. Johnson Stakes, Coasted will try to take the step to graded stakes winner when she faces an expected six other juvenile fillies in the Miss Grillo Stakes (gr. IIIT) Oct. 2 on the Belmont Park | Track Profile">Belmont Park inner turf.

A daughter of Tizway, Treadway Racing Stable's Coasted fifnished fifth sprinting on the main track July 2 at Belmont. But moved to the turf by trainer Leah Gyarmati for her next start, Coasted responded with a six-length win in a maiden race Aug. 7 at Saratoga Race Course before returning to that course for a clear victory in the 1 1/16-mile P. G. Johnson Sept. 1.

The Miss Grillo also will be contested at 1 1/16 miles.

Awaiting Coasted Sunday are three horses making their United States debuts after starting their careers in Europe. Trainer Pia Brandt will send out Rymska, by Le Havre, a stakes winner in France, while trainer Chad Brown will saddle Dancing Waves and Create a Dream. Dancing Waves, by Zoffany, enters off an easy maiden win in Ireland while Create a Dream, by Oasis Dream, will make her first start since she finished fourth, just a length back of winner Brave Anna, in the Albany Stakes (Eng-III) June 17 at Royal Ascot.
