Gotta Go Web

Third Stakes-Winner for Shanghai Bobby

Promising colt Gotta Go (2c Shanghai Bobby x Disturbingly Hot, by Unbridled’s Song) has improved at every outing and claimed a courageous victory in the $83,001 Street Sense Stakes at Churchill Downs on Sunday. Fifth on debut in July before winning his maiden last month, the Ian Wilkes trained colt was tenacious to the line in winning the one mile contest by a head. A $250,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase, Gotta Go runs for the Lothenbach Stable and is the first winner for Disturbingly Hot, a half-sister to stakes-winner Hostile Witness and a close relation to Grade I winner Splendid Blended.

Gotta Go is the third first crop stakes-winner for Shanghai Bobby joining March X Press and Mr Pete.
