Stay Thirsty head shot

Top class Grade I winner Stay Thirsty is making a fine start to his stud career and posted his first stakes-winner on the weekend with a tenacious victory in the $75,000 Cleveland Kindergarten Stakes at Thistledown for Jocker Justice (2c Stay Thirsty x Erica’s Melody, by Unbridled’s Song).

A homebred for Justice Farms prepared by Aaron West, Jocker Justice was placed at his only two previous runs including a second in the Hoover Stakes.

He led for home and fought on strongly to win the six furlong sprint by a head and has now won $62,050 in prizemoney.

A half-brother to stakes-placed Jasmine’s Melody, Jocker Justice is the best of three winners from Erica’s Melody.

He is the fifth winner for dual Grade I winner Stay Thirsty.
