I've played with this issue using some data from the Derby and 9f Derby preps. In both cases, horses ran better relative to their tops if they were 3w in the first turn than if they were 1w. That benefit was not enough, however, to offset the cost of ground loss (taking into account that being wide on the first turn usually also means being wide on the second turn).
