  1. Coastal

    Coastal was an American Thoroughbred racehorse. He was sired by U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee Majestic Prince out of the mare, Alluvial, who was in turn was sired by U.S. Racing Hall of Fame stallion, Buckpasser. He was a half-brother, thru Alluvial, to Slew o' Gold. Owned by William Haggin Perry and trained by David A. Whiteley, Coastal won the Peter Pan Stakes by an impressive 12 lengths, prompting his owner to pay an expensive supplemental nomination fee for the Belmont Stakes. It was money well spent as Coastal went on to win the Belmont, a feat that his sire did not accomplish. It was a huge upset over Spectacular Bid, who placed third, and the first supplemental entry to ever win the Belmont. He ran second to Affirmed in the Woodward Stakes and third in the Marlboro Cup Invitational Handicap behind Spectacular Bid and General Assembly. Then, in the Grade I Jockey Club Gold Cup, in a stretch battle with rivals Spectacular Bid and Affirmed, he again placed third.

Examples of coastal in a Sentence

  1. Oeystein Jensen:

    So Norway, via Svalbard, is the coastal state in charge, now, the 1920 Svalbard Treaty forces Norway to treat all signatories fairly. The EU does not have the right to issue licenses, but the treaty perhaps grants the EU the right to be equally treated. The EU, by issuing their own licenses, has ignored these steps and ignored international law.

  2. Carl Lipo:

    The issue of water availability (or the lack of it) has often been mentioned by researchers who work on Rapa Nui/Easter Island, when we started to examine the details of the hydrology, we began to notice that freshwater access and statue location were tightly linked together. It wasnt obvious when walking around--with the water emerging at the coast during low tide, one doesnt necessarily see obvious indications of water. File photo - Statues at Anakena Beach, Easter Island, Chile. (Photo by Eric LAFFORGUE/Gamma-Rapho via Getty Images) Places without ahu/moai showed no freshwater, he added. The pattern was striking and surprising in how consistent it was. Researchers had already identified groundwater discharge in coastal areas as a key factor in the statues placement on Easter Islands coast. In the latest stage of the research, experts examined how the availability of freshwater in certain areas was linked to the methods and means of building the statues. EASTER ISLANDS ANCIENT CIVILIZATION WAS NOT DESTROYED BY WARFARE, EXPERTS SAY Around 900 statues, or moai, are dotted around Easter Island. Circa 1955: Two ancient statues of uncertain origin on Easter Island, in the South Pacific Ocean. (Photo by Richard Harrington/Three Lions/Getty Images).
