Kentucky Derby and Horse Racing at The Downey Profile®

Stay Thirsty Well the Day After

3/6/2011

Stay Thirsty came out of his Grade III Gotham win in good shape, assistant trainer Jonathan Thomas reported from Todd Pletcher’s barn.

Now 2-2-0 from five starts, the Bernardini colt has $260,000 in graded stakes earnings, $150,000 for the Gotham, $60,000 from the Breeders' Cup Juvenile and $50,000 from his runner-up finish in the Grade I Three Chimneys Hopeful.

“As a fan of racing, to me, coming off a huge layoff, breaking poorly, going wide on the first turn, it was an impressive effort,” said Thomas. “He ran like a horse asking for distance.”

Stay Thirsty will return to Pletcher’s barn at Palm Meadows training center, most likely on Tuesday, to prepare for his next start, either the Grade I Florida Derby on April 3 or the Grade I Arkansas Derby on April 16. Uncle Mo, who will make his 2011 debut on Saturday in the Timely Writer at Gulfstream, is pointed toward the Grade I Wood Memorial on April 9.
