#9 Gotmymojoworkin 8/1
Both of the Bob Baffert trained colts — #2 Street Car and #8 Wall Street Wonder — have several quick workouts showing in the Daily Racing Form. But I believe Corey Naktani on Wall Street Wonder will be quicker out of the gate. For one thing, he’s a Florida-bred and those debuters have performed better in So. Cal than those from Kentucky or California over the last few years. Other betable firsters, at the right price, include #9 Gotmymojoworkin and #1 Pauper’s Prize.
Martin Wygod owns #7 Snapshot who was laid off for five months after showing speed in his Aug. 2 Del Mar debut. Wygod and Sise have won many races together with second-time starters.
At 7/2 or more, I’ll bet $300 to win on #8 Wall Street Wonder, and $200 on both #9 Gotmymojoworkin, and #2 Street Car.
