Art Rooney Pace winner Downbytheseaside is the No. 1-ranked harness racing horse in the first Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll of the year. The 3-year-old male pacer, who is 3-for-3 this season, received 21 of 35 first-place votes and was the poll’s leader by 60 points over second-place Lady Shadow.

Lady Shadow, a 6-year-old female pacer, won the Betsy Ross Mares Invitational last weekend for her second win in two starts this year. She received seven first-place votes.

New Zealand-bred Molson Pace winner Bit Of A Legend was third in the poll, followed by Maxie Lee Memorial Invitational champ Crazy Wow and the season’s leading money-earner Somewhere In LA.

A total of 54 horses received at least one point in the balloting.

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.
