Two Greg Gilchrest Fillies Entered in Saturday's Sausalito Stakes at Golden Gate Fields

Trainer Greg Gilchrest has entered his two very special 3-year-old fillies, Indyanne and High Resolve, against older males in Saturday's Sausalito Stakes at Golden Gate Fields, for 3-year-olds and up at 6 furlongs on the main track. High Resolve races for the Estate of Harry Aleo, Gilchrest's longtime owner and friend who died on June 21st after a battle with cancer, and for whom Gilchrest conditioned Lost in the Fog and Smokey Stover. Indyanne is owned by John Sikura.

The possibility remains that either, or both, of the two fillies will be scratched from the Sausalito and instead aim for the $65,000 Playa Del Rey, a sprint for fillies and mares at Hollywood Park on Thanksgiving Day.

Indyanne, by Indian Charlie, is a multiple graded stakes winner who has won 5 of 6 starts including the Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes at Keeneland last month -- a race that earned her a spot in the $1 million Breeders Cup Filly & Mare Sprint. She was withdrawn from the BC Filly & Mare Sprint after developing a cough and low-grade fever.

High Resolve, by Put It Back, has won 6 of 8 starts including 4 stakes. She was a 5-1/4 length winner of the $150,000 Joe O'Farrell Juvenile Fillies Stakes on the Florida Millions card in 2007.

Here's how the field looks for the Sasalito:
