Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Saturday, May 10

FIRST RACE: 1. Silk in Silver, 2. Kid Rollins, 3. Corinthian Melody. LONG SHOT: Wild Nicole.


SECOND RACE: 1. Segway, 2. Tiz Dynamic, 3. Jules Journey. LONG SHOT: Dreamy Kid.


THIRD RACE: 1. Circle the Moon, 2. Valley Cat, 3. Big Kick. LONG SHOT: Toledo Eddie.

Trainer Karen Headley drops CIRCLE THE MOON, a gelding, in class and stretches him out. The real tipoff here is the securing of jockey Mike Smith, who is a perfect 4-for-4 riding for Headley over the last two years.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Gameboy Luke, 2. Distinct Asset, 3. Red Globe. LONG SHOT: Letaba.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Cut to Run, 2. Time for a J, 3. Soul Saver. LONG SHOT: Doctor McEachnie.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Creditcardroulette, 2. Kerrilynn, 3. Toppers Sunshine. LONG SHOT: Thermal Nermal.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Chelios, 2. Kobe’s Back, 3. Ferocious. LONG SHOT: Top Fortitude.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Sweet Boss (best bet), 2. Queen of the Hill, 3. Chati’s On Top. LONG SHOT: Copperopolis.

Trainer John Shirreffs cuts back SWEET BOSS, a 4-year-old filly, from a mile to 6½ furlongs down the hill on the grass. That has been a winning formula in the past. On top of that, this daughter of Street Boss should like the shorter distance as her daddy was a very nice sprinter. Add on Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith jumps aboard.


NINTH RACE: 1. Enchanted Fortune, 2. See Through, 3. Classy Ava. LONG SHOT: Reverchon.
