Hightstown, NJ — Gimpanzee lost for the first time this season but remained No. 1 in this week’s Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, but by only the slightest margin. Gimpanzee, who finished second to Guardian Angel AS in the Crawford Farms Open Trot, received 17 of 35 first-place votes and 321 points, two points more than Ramona Hill.

Ramona Hill was idle last week. She received 14 first-place votes, an increase of six from a week ago.

Tall Dark Stranger and Shartin N were next in the rankings and received the remaining first-place votes. Tall Dark Stranger, who totaled three top votes, was idle last week while Shartin N, with one first-place vote, won the Artiscape. Rounding out the top five was Manchego, who finished third in last weekend’s Joie De Vie.

The top-six places in the rankings were unchanged. Following Manchego were Sorella, Reflect With Me, and Atlanta, who all were idle. Bettor’s Wish was second to Century Farroh in the Dan Patch Stakes and remained ninth.

Joining the top 10 in the final spot was Party Girl Hill, who was idle last week but is undefeated in six races.

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.
