Today dawned crisp and clear in northern California, a beautiful morning to watch the workouts at Golden Gate Fields. I visited with trainer Greg Gilchrist and watched his good filly Wild Promises out for a gallop, catching a video of her as she passed the viewing stand twice.
Gilchrist said Wild Promises is pointing toward the Sunshine Millions Filly & Mare Turf at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 24. The 4-year-old daughter of Wild Event, owned by the estate of Harry Aleo, won the grade 3 My Charmer Handicap at Calder on Dec. 6, her fifth straight stakes win.
