Repole Hoping for Stay Thirsty, 'Mo' Double

Owner Mike Repole could have the post time favorites for the two biggest races at Saratoga on Saturday with Stay Thirsty in the $1 million Travers (G1) and Uncle Mo in the $250,000 Foxwoods King's Bishop (G1). 

Stay Thirsty, seventh in the $1 million Florida Derby (G1), is coming into the Travers off an impressive victory July 30 in the Jim Dandy (G1). Uncle Mo, winner of Gulfstream's Timely Writer, will be making his first start since April after being diagnosed with a live disorder.

Both horses are conditioned by Todd Pletcher and both stabled and trained over the winter at Palm Meadows.
