Hightstown, NJ — There was a slight shuffle in this week’s Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, but no newcomers to the Top 10.
Marion Marauder, who finished fifth in the Yonkers International Trot, swapped places with idle Six Pack, going from No. 7 to No. 8.
McWicked, who won the Dan Rooney Invitational Pace at Yonkers, remained at No. 2. No other horses in the Top 10 were in action.
The Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll does not determine Horse of the Year. The U.S. Harness Writers Association votes in December 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.
