Rachel Alexander Over/Under number of starts in 2010 is 5-½:



Will they take a Zenyatta-like path to the Classic? A lot of that probably might depend on how the Horse of the Year vote goes. So it is four races before the Breeders’ Cup Classic, or five?




Voting will run for a couple weeks, results will be posted afterwards.

Alexandra Over/Under number of starts vs. males in 2010 is 1-½:



We’re obviously figuring that the Classic is one. And since Jess Jackson’s and Steve Asmussen’s filly already has beaten males three times, what would be the point of that?

Female Trainer of the Year - 2009:



For the ladies of the backstretch, has there ever been a year like 2009? Presious Passion was a marvel on firm turf but his trainer had him fit for virtually and entire year. A woman won the training title at Saratoga? Really? And there are plenty of top trainers in South Florida, how did O’Connell manage that? And while it wasn’t this year, let’s not forget the Pitts-Blasi developed a first time starter named Curlin a few years ago!

Female Jockey Of The Year - 2009:



Imagine if Julie Krone were still riding? I would have loved to see her go against some top distaff riders. As it was, she won over 3,700 races. And id you know that Homeister Jr. is going head to head with Daniel Centeno for the riding title at Tampa Bay Downs this winter? You could look it up.

Horsewoman of the Year - 2009:



Not woman horse of the year; that’s tough enough to decide. But like Horse of the Year Eclipse voting, it would be nice of some of these fillies finished in a dead heat for the win. There is not a single one who’s unworthy.
