Ambitious Campaign Planned for Stay Thirsty

With Uncle Mo retired, Stay Thirsty is now the top gun in Mike Repole’s stable. And after a championship-caliber 3-year-old season in 2011, there are high expectations for the son of Bernardini next year.

Repole, definitely in the swing-for-the-fences category, has tentatively mapped out an ambitious campaign for Stay Thirsty in 2012—one that could include all of the high-profile races for older horses in New York. But first things first. After a full sophomore season that included three graded stakes wins from eight starts, the colt is receiving a much-deserved break at J. J. Crupi’s New Castle Farm in Ocala, Fla.

“He’ll get 60 to 90 days off and return to training with Todd (Pletcher) in mid-January or February, Repole said. “He probably won’t even race in Florida. We really want to focus on the second quarter of the year on. He might start in the Westchester (gr. III in April at Belmont) and then possibly the Met Mile (gr. I in May at Belmont). He’s proven that he can run well anywhere from six furlongs to a mile and half, so we have plenty of options. Adding the Met Mile to his resume, which already includes the mile and quarter Travers, could be very attractive.
