Jockey Alex Solis, trainer Mel Stute and the horses Silver Charm and Best Pal are among the finalists announced Wednesday for thoroughbred racing's Hall of Fame.

Solis was nominated along with Craig Perret and the retired Eddie Maple among jockeys. Stute is on the ballot with John Veitch, now a steward in Kentucky, and the late Bob Wheeler. Solis and Stute teamed up with Snow Chief to win the 1986 Preakness.

Inside Information, Silverbulletday and Sky Beauty are the ''contemporary females'' finalists.

Voting results will be announced May 30. The top vote-getter in each division will go into the Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs, N.Y, as long as he or she receives ''yes'' votes from 75 percent of the 190-member panel.

--Brother Derek vs. 8: Brother Derek, the West Coast's leading Kentucky Derby hopeful, will face Latent Heat and seven other opponents in Saturday's $200,000 Santa Catalina Stakes.
