Runaway Churchill winner for Stay Thirsty

Stay Thirsty conformation

Thirstforlife (2c Stay Thirsty-Promenade Girl, by Carson City) earned TDN “Rising Star’ status on Saturday when showing devastating speed to win a Churchill Downs maiden special weight by six and and a half lengths.

The Mark Casse-trained Thirstforlife, a $240,000 Keeneland November Sale graduate, was another first-crop winner for Stay Thirsty and he looks set to continue to be a flagbearer for his sire this year after this striking victory.

“Ranging up two wide turning for home, the chestnut blew the race apart in the lane, charging clear under a hand ride to score by a dominant 6 1/2 lengths over Lipan and become the newest ‘TDN Rising Star’” said the TDN.
