Trainer Greg Gilchrist was in the Del Mar paddock this morning to oversee the schooling of Wild Promises, who shipped in from Northern California for the closing day feature, the Grade 2 Palomar Handicap for fillies and mares three years old and up at 1-1/16 miles on the turf.
A 5-year-old Florida-bred daughter of Wild Event, Wild Promises is a multiple stakes winner with a record of 13 victories from 19 starts. She is coming off an impressive repeat victory in the Luther Burbank Handicap at Santa Rosa on Aug. 8. Wild Promises is owned by the estate of Harry Aleo, best known for campaigning champion sprinter Lost in the Fog.
