Trainer Bobby Frankel has informed Churchill Downs racing officials that Humana Distaff (gr. I) winner Sightseek will run in the $300,000-added Fleur De Lis (gr. II) on June 14.
Frankel had originally planned to send Shuvee (gr. II) winner Wild Spirit to the race.
Other Frankel trainees in action on the $1.35 million "Stephen Foster Super Saturday" race card include Metropolitan Handicap (gr. I) winner Aldebaran in the $750,000-added Stephen Foster Handicap (gr. I) and Edmund Gann's Personal Legend in the $200,000-added Regret (gr. III).
A pair of California-based fillies will ship to Churchill Downs for the Fleur De Lis. Iron County Farm's Sixty Sails (gr. III) winner Bare Necessities will travel to Churchill Downs for trainer Wally Dollase, as will John J. Greely III's Enjoy, runner-up to reigning Horse of the Year Azeri in the recent Milady Breeders' Cup (gr. I) at Hollywood Park.
