Frisco Belle strikes in 2003 Palo Alto Stakes at Bay Meadows
Harry Aleo, best known as the owner of Lost in the Fog, was an unconventional San Franciscan. Not only was he an unapologetic Republican, he also used the term "Frisco" when he named his horses. This video shows one of them, Frisco Belle, winning the 2003 Palo Alto Stakes at Bay Meadows with Joey Castro aboard. Frisco Belle, trained by Greg Gilchrist, was dangled for a $62500 tag when she won at Del Mar in August, but there were no takers. It was fortunate for her connections because she'd go on to earn black-type wins in the Palo Alto here as a 3-year-old and the Star Ball Handicap as a 4-year-old. Watch Out World, a half-sister to 1996 Santa Anita Derby winner and Kentucky Derby runner-up Cavonnier, was second in the Palo Alto.
