Stay Thirsty , winner of the 2011 Travers Stakes (gr. I), will stand for $17,500 in 2013 at Ashford Stud near Versailles, Ky. The son of Bernardini will contest his final start in the Nov. 24 Cigar Mile (gr. I) at Aqueduct.
It was first announced that Stay Thirsty would stand at Ashford in early October. The colt, who also ran a tough second in the TVG Jockey Club Gold Cup Invitational Stakes (gr. I) at Belmont Park Sept. 29 for owner Mike Repole, will join former stablemate Uncle Mo at Ashford.
Uncle Mo won the 2010 Grey Goose Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I) and was voted champion 2-year-old male for Repole. Todd Pletcher, who trained Uncle Mo, conditions Stay Thirsty.
