Hightstown, NJ — Maple Leaf Trot winner Atlanta vaulted back into the top 10 in this week’s harness racing  Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, landing at No. 7 in the rankings. Atlanta was just outside the top 10 last week but added 101 points this week to make her big move.

Ramona Hill, who won a qualifier Saturday at The Meadowlands, remained No. 1 for the third consecutive week. Tall Dark Stranger (idle) stayed at No. 2 and was followed by Maple Leaf third-place finisher Gimpanzee, who held a one-point edge over undefeated Pennsylvania Sire Stakes champion Party Girl Hill. Completing the top five was Shartin N (idle).

Goodtimes Stakes winner Ready For Moni also moved up in this week’s rankings, going from eighth to sixth. Rounding out the top 10 were Sorella (idle) at No. 8, followed by Kentucky Sire Stakes leg winner Reflect With Me, and Maple Leaf fifth-place finisher Manchego.

The Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll 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.
