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!
