Notching his first win since the 2011 Travers Stakes (gr. I), Repole Stables' Stay Thirsty got the bob on Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint (gr. I) winner Groupie Doll in the $343,000 Cigar Mile at Aqueduct Nov. 24.
Stay Thirsty definitively stamped himself as the 3-year-old division leader when he won the $1 million Travers (gr. I) Aug. 27 at Saratoga.
Odds-on Stay Thirsty made a successful 3-year-old debut, taking over from pacesetter The Fed Eased in mid-stretch and rolling to a 3 1/4-length victory in the $250,000 Gotham Stakes (gr. III) March 5 at Aqueduct.
