Debut Saratoga Winner Stay Thirsty

Thirst For Victory (Stay Thirsty) winning a maiden at Saratoga

Promising young sire Stay Thirsty added another winner to the tally with an impressive debut victory at Saratoga on Saturday for Thirst for Victory (2c Stay Thirsty x Magical Victory, by Victory Gallop).

The Todd Pletcher trained colt was favourite for the seven furlong maiden and despite being slowly away was able to muster speed to take up a stalking position.

He ran away from his rivals in the sloppy conditions to win by a commanding three lengths.

An $80,000 Keeneland September purchase, Thirst for Victory runs for the Repole Stable and is from stakes-placed Magical Victory.

Thirst for Victory has a yearling half-brother by Uncle Mo and a weanling full-sister. Magical Victory was bred back to another Coolmore sire this year in Declaration of War.

Thirst for Victory is the sixth winner for Stay Thirsty, who is making a pleasing start to his stud career.
