Stay Thirsty might be the best 3 year old colt in the country. He is really coming into his own. Hope he runs and wins the classic.
  • jinlie01 · He did look good...lost tons on Raison d'Etat. Obviously wasn't a good pick. "Thirsty" is getting better as the racing season progresses...can't wait for BC Classic! · 1094 days ago
Coil was one of the favorites of the race and had good odds, but that's just not enough in a race. There's some bloodline, trainer/jockey partnership, and lots other stuff, but it mainly takes power and guts. :)
That's amazing! JW Blue was one of my two picks next to Ruler on Ice. I honestly started to doubt (considering the 31-1 odds), but he managed a third place snag! So exciting and high-paced!
Stay Thirsty Wins the Travers from Rattlesnake Bridge, J W Blue & Ruler on Ice!
  • yukichan · Holy Cow!! He IS for real! After that stumble...to stay in the game and win like he did. Awesome! · 1096 days ago
Box Rattlesnake Bridge with Stay Thirsty and use Shackleford in tri box
Let's stay with the theme of things, longshots in the major three year old faces. Going to use Velazquez and Rattlesnake Bridge on top of Stay Thirsty and wheel in the double.

Heh, does anyone know what channel the Travers is on, NBC is doing weather and news and i dont have TVG. Need to know how to watch at my home
http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/horse-racing/tag/_/name/3-year-olds Horse Racing: 3-year-olds At least the Travers will be fun Perhaps at some point, an IMPROVING 3-YEAR-OLD will actually win more than a single stakes. Someone might become a dominant figure by adding a victory in the Travers to an earlier triumph.
Stay Thirsty won Jim Dandy very impressive way, Shackleford in Haskell did not run very well, it was not his actual run, i think he has still the same stamina as he shown in kentucky derby and preakness, so i am not counting him down yet, i still believe that if he takes the lead as he did in the Preakness Stakes, he has still chance to beat Stay Thirsty, i am not worring about other horse, coil and Ruler on Ice might be challenging theses two horses like Stay Thirsty and Shackleford but i have a doubt that they can succeed. so my selection will be either Stay Thirsty or Shackleford will take the Travers.
For me Stay Thirsty will be a Tornado and win the Travers
  • medlocke · @ivanlsardi, I've also been impressed by Stay Thirsty this season. He looked awesome in the Jim Dandy, and I thought he ran a really respectable Belmont, too. But I'm torn between Stay Thirsty and Coil for the Travers? Because, IMO, Coil has been equally impressive himself in 2011. His win in the Haskell, coming from well off the pace to run down Shakleford looks strong. And his Swaps Stakes and Affirmed Handicap run's look like really strong form lines as well. I may just play a Stay Thirsty-Coil exacta, and box it. · 1098 days ago
Dont forget to check out my blog: horseracingstation.wordpress.com for free PP for the Travers.
The Travers is setting up very nicely. Coil and Stay Thirsty looked great, and Shackleford, Ruler On Ice and Brilliant Speed had their preps. Throw in Dominus and a few others and we have the makings of a great midsummer Classic!
