Harry J. Aleo was an American businessman and owner of Thoroughbred racehorses. Born in Noe Valley, San Francisco, California, he was a lifelong resident of San Francisco. During World War II he served overseas with the United States Army where among his campaigns he fought in the Battle of the Bulge. At war's end, Aleo returned home and founded Twin Peaks Properties, a real estate and insurance brokerage firm he would own and operate until his death.
In 1979 he became involved in the sport of Thoroughbred horse racing. Throughout his more than two decades in racing, his only trainer was Greg Gilchrist. His most famous horse was the ill-fated Lost in the Fog who was voted the Eclipse Award as the 2005 American Champion Sprint Horse.
People love the horse, and that's what it is all about. This is something that money can't buy. I've owned horses for 27 years, and you dream of something like this. But I never dreamed that I'd have the wonder horse.
