Shartin N remains on top in poll
Hightstown, NJ — There is little change in this week’s Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, with Ben Franklin Pace elimination winner Lather Up the only newcomer to the Top 10.
The top four positions in the rankings — Shartin N, Atlanta, Captain Crunch, and Greenshoe — are unchanged. Western Fame, also a Franklin elimination winner, rounds out the top five after moving up from sixth in a swap of places with idle Bettor’s Wish.
Warrawee Ubeaut, who won an elimination of the James M. Lynch Memorial, also improves her position by a spot, going from eighth to seventh.
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.
