Here is the first week of the Hambletonian/Breeders Crown Standardbred Top Ten Poll of the best trotters and pacers in North America.

Usually the first week is a very questionable collection of selections and this year is no different, the people who are invited to submit their Top Ten Poll are supposed to be extremely knowledgeable and follow the sport week after week throughout North America.

In some cases they vote from their hearts and not from their knowledge. Thus you will see 1st place votes for Somwheroverarainbow and Maven, which is, in my opinion only, is totally ridiculous. That Yagonnakissmeornot and DW's NY Yank are not in the top ten are also a sin, that Modern Family is in 9th is ludicrous, but it's the first week and things will settle down in the coming weeks and the list will properly straighten out.

Kudos to Ken Weingartner for compiling the Top Ten Poll, it is a lot of work and he does a fabulous job at it since its inception!
