Coolmores napsu p StayT hirsty for Kentuckya rm.
Expected to have one more race at four this year, Stay Thirsty is trained by Todd Pletcher for Mike Repole, the same team behind this year's Ashford Stud recruit Uncle Mo.
Repole has retained a minority interest in Stay Thirsty, whom Pletcher bought as a two-year-old for $500,000, and plans to send the stallion six of his mares next year.
A son of Darley's exciting Kentucky-based sire Bernardini, Stay Thirsty was runner-up in the Grade 1 Hopeful Stakes at two and peaked at three, when he won the Grade 2 Jim Dandy Stakes by four lengths and the Grade 1 Travers Stakes by just under two lengths.
Stay Thirsty has won four of his 16 starts and has hit the board in five other races. His earnings stand at $1,726,000. He is out of the Storm Bird mare Marozia, who won a Lingfield 1m4f handicap for John Gosden and Sheikh Mohammed.
The dam has also produced Grade 3 winner Andromeda's Hero and Grade 1-placed Superf ly.
Coolmore has previously put their faith in the A.P. Indy stallion Bernardini by buying a $1.55 million colt who was the second dearest yearling at last month's Keeneland September yearling sale to add to a $875,000 yearling colt bought last year.
