Santa Anita opinions for Saturday, Jan. 11

FIRST RACE: 1. Mainframe Judy, 2. Vastly Deep, 3. You’reright Again. LONG SHOT: Baltimore Beecho.

SECOND RACE: 1. Mandy, 2. Win Often, 3. French Rose. LONG SHOT: Way too Sweet.

THIRD RACE: 1. Storm the Hill, 2. Jolie Olimpica, 3. Kentan Road. LONG SHOT: An Eddie Surprise.

FOURTH RACE: Mr. Unusual, 2. Itsthattime, 3. Mahi Mahi. LONG SHOT: Constitutionaffair.

FIFTH RACE: 1. Sugar Pickel (best bet), 2. Secret Square, 3. Mosienko. LONG SHOT: Bella Renella.

SIXTH RACE: 1. Policy, 2. Gate Speed, 3. Music to My Ears. LONG SHOT: High Five.

SEVENTH RACE: 1. Rakassah, 2. She’s So Special, 3. Don’t Unzip Me. LONG SHOT: Munn She’s Pretty.
This is a tough maiden race going 5 1/2-furlongs on the turf. This might end up being a key race so watch carefully. Rakassah is from the Phi D’Amato barn and a first-time starter in the U.S. D’Amato is 18 percent off a 46 to 90-day layoff. The filly’s sire gets 28 percent winners. Trainer Peter Miller knows how to get turf sprinters to win and this filly ran a good second at Del Mar. Trainer Jonathan Wong’s pair of Don’t Unzip Me and Munn She’s Pretty are interesting so check out the toteboard.

EIGHTH RACE: 1. Horologist, 2. Message, 3. Spiced Perfection. LONG SHOT: Starr of Quality.

NINTH RACE: 1. Miss Ryleigh, 2. Too Much Smoke, 3. Sassyverb. LONG SHOT: Creer.

Good luck.
