Shartin N remains No. 1 in poll

by Ken Weingartner, USTA Media Relations Manager

Hightstown, NJ — Only two horses in the Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown top 10 were in action last week, which resulted in little movement at the top of the rankings.

Gimpanzee, who won a division of the New York Sire Stakes to remain unbeaten in 12 career races, improved his position from eighth to seventh in the poll. Western Fame, who finished fifth in the Joe Gerrity Jr. Memorial, dropped from the top 10. Millie’s Possesion, who was idle but is undefeated in seven starts, moved into the No. 10 spot.

Shartin N remained No. 1, with 33 of 35 first-place votes. She was followed by Atlanta, Greenshoe, Lather Up, and Bettor’s Wish in the top five.

The Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, which runs weekly through November, does not determine Horse of the Year. The members of the U.S. Harness Writers Association vote on all Dan Patch Award division winners plus Trotter of the Year, Pacer of the Year and Horse of the Year.

Rankings based on the votes of harness racing media representatives on a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis.
