Stay Thirsty wrested command from Shackleford nearing the quarter pole, edged away to a clear lead in midstretch, and held off a late run from 14-1 Rattlesnake Bridge to win the $1 million Travers Stakes by 1 1/4 lengths.
Stay Thirsty ($6.80), the favorite in the field of 10 3-year-olds, ran the 1 1/4 miles in 2:03.03 under Javier Castellano. He was the second stakes winner on the day for trainer Todd Pletcher, who came within a nose of sweeping the day's three Grade 1 stakes races.
