Stay Thirsty a deserving No. 1
It makes no sense that Stay Thirsty, on August 27, is the best 3-year-old colt in America. He was a second stringer in his own barn as a 2-year-old, was wretched in the Florida Derby, lousy in the Kentucky Derby and, less than three months ago, seemed to be going nowhere. But figuring out the how and why to this dramatic turnaround really doesn't matter right now.
With his decisive win in the Travers Saturday at Saratoga, Stay Thirsty left little doubt as to who's the best of this class.
