Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Thursday, May 8

FIRST RACE: 1. Lookin for Money, 2. Yes She’s a Dancer, 3. Sea Mona. LONG SHOT: Kyankes.

Trainer Doug O’Neill sent out a 2-year-old winner last week and here he sends out one of the first juveniles sired by Lookin At Lucky. This filly has been training at Fairplex Park and gets the services of leading jockey Rafael Bejarano. SEA MONA has some big works, but I have a problem betting/picking a first-timer starter out of the No. 1 hole.
