Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Saturday, Jan. 4

FIRST RACE: 1. Elgofranco, 2. Lucky Long Legs, 3. Bluegrass Sky. LONG SHOT: Oui Say No.

SECOND RACE: 1. Port Saint Joe (best bet), 2. Phast Pharoah, 3. Absolute Unit. LONG SHOT: Restoring Dreams.
Trainer Doug O’Neill has three horses in this 5 1/2-furlong turf sprint. O’Neill is 5% with debuting horses on the grass so I’ve eliminated Keno’d and Liam’s Pride. However, O’Neill is 15% first time turf when the horse has had at least one race and that’s why I like Port Saint Joe. Plus the 3-year-old’s sire gets 26% winners first time on the grass.

THIRD RACE: 1. My Journey, 2. Miker Operator, 3. Royal Ranger. LONG SHOT: Wild Cat Canyon.

FOURTH RACE: 1. Kakistocracy, 2. Jetovator, 3. Fravel. LONG SHOT: Big City Bane.

FIFth RACE: 1. Authentic, 2. Taishan, 3. Azul Coast. LONG SHOT: Uncaptured Hero.

SIXTH RACE : 1. Sothalis, 2. Oh Pretty Woman, 3. Scarlet Heat. LONG SHOT: Lovely Finish.

SEVENTH RACE: 1. Proverb, 2. Street Class, 3. Bold Endeavor. LONG SHOT: Mongoalin Hero.

EIGHTH RACE : 1. Acker, 2. North County Guy, 3. Cleopatra’s Strike. LONG SHOT: Overdue.

NINTH RACE: 1. Soldier Boy, 2. Truck Salesman, 3. Sigalert. LONG SHOT: Order and Law.

10TH RACE: 1. An Eddie Surprise, 2. Queen of the Track, 3. Anonymously. LONG SHOT: Mariah Girl.

GOOD LUCK.
