Expensive West Coast Colt Gives Sire First Winner

West CoastLane's End

Carolyn Wilson's Fit to Fly (West Coast), a $570,000 OBSMAR acquisition, lived up to his name with a dominant 7 1/4-length score, becoming his freshman sire (by Flatter)'s first winner. Hammered down to even-money favoritism for this debut, the bay went straight to the front and never looked back, clear at every call to win for fun over stablemate Rivzonaroll (Good Samaritan). A $155,000 FTKJUL yearling, he more than tripled that price as a juvenile after breezing in :21 flat for Eddie Woods. Fit to Fly is a half to SW Keke Kimono (Laoban) and has a yearling full-brother. Her SP dam Kimono was bred to Win Win Win for this season, but no live foal has been reported yet.

3rd-Hawthorne, $43,200, Msw, 6-11, 2yo, 4 1/2f, :52.53, ft, 7 1/4 lengths.
