Stay Thirsty Sharp for Suburban

Stay Thirsty wins 2011 Gotham Stakes.

A stellar field is expected to assemble next Saturday for the 127th running of the Grade 2, $350,000 Suburban Handicap including Stay Thirsty, second to the front-running Trickmeister in the Vanlandingham on May 17.

 

Stay Thirsty, who last year earned more than $1.3 million for owner Mike Repole and trainer Todd Pletcher in winning the Grade 1 Travers, the Grade 2 Jim Dandy and the Grade 3 Gotham, tuned up for the 1 1/8-mile race on Monday, covering five furlongs in a bullet 1:00.05 on the Belmont Park training track.

 

“He came out of the work well; he’s sharp right now,” said Pletcher’s assistant, Michael McCarthy, of Stay Thirsty, who was making his 4-year-old debut in the 1 1-16-mile Vanlandingham.

 

According to NYRA stakes coordinator Andrew Byrnes, also expected for the Suburban are Buffum, eight-length winner of an optional claimer in his 2012 debut, for which he received a lifetime best Beyer Speed Figure of 105; 2012 Grade 1 Donn Handicap winner Hymn Book, fifth after an eventful trip in the Grade 3 Pimlico Special last time out; Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Handicap winner Mucho Macho Man, most recently third in the Grade 2 Alysheba; Rogue Romance, fourth in the Grade 1 Stephen Foster on June 16, and To Honor and Serve, who earned a career-best 109 Beyer finishing third to Shackleford and Caleb’s Posse in the Grade 1 Met Mile on Memorial Day.
