Hightstown, NJ --- There were no newcomers in this week’s Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, but some shifting of positions.

Empire Breeders Classic winner Courtly Choice moved from No. 8 to No. 5 in the rankings while Lather Up, who won a division of the Ohio Sire Stakes, improved from 10th to eighth.

Artiscape winner Shartin N did not move in the poll, but did close the gap on No. 2 Hannelore Hanover to one point. Atlanta, who was idle, remained No. 1.

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.
