Stay Thirsty, Uncle Mo to Work Sunday

Trainer Todd Pletcher, anticipating a busy day, said he hasn’t made a final decision when Mike Repole’s Stay Thirsty and Uncle Mo, respective contenders for next Saturday’s Grade 1 Travers and Grade 1 Foxwoods King’s Bishop, will head to the track Sunday morning. He did guarantee at least one of them will breeze at 6 a.m. with the other going out in the same set or at 8:45 a.m.

 

“I anticipate we’ll have a lot of breezes tomorrow,” said Pletcher. “At least one of them, possibly both of them, will be breezing at 6 a.m.”

 

Stay Thirsty, second in the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes, enters the 1 ¼-mile Travers off a four-length victory in the Grade 2, 1 1/8-mile Jim Dandy on July 30 at Saratoga. The seven-furlong Foxwoods King’s Bishop will be the third start of 2011 for Uncle Mo, who was named last year’s Champion Two-Year-Old Male and hasn’t raced since finishing third in the Grade 1 Resorts World New York Casino Wood Memorial in April.
