Trained by Trevor Andrews, Miss West Coast was runner-up on October 6 prior to resuming with a three quarter length victory over Drinkwhatyoulike (Denman), with Mia Dolce (Patronize) another half length away in third. Miss West Coast joins two-time winner Specialism as victors for Safeguard, who stood for a fee of $6,600 (inc GST) in 2018. A Mogumber Park-consigned sister to Miss West Coast is catalogued as Lot 26 for the Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale in February.
