Freehold, NJ - There was little change in this week’s harness racing Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, with the only movement in positions coming with 3-year-old female pacer Pure Country and 4-year-old female trotter Hannelore Hanover swapping places in spots Nos. 4 and 5. The two horses are separated by one point.

Pure Country won a division of the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes last week, her fifth consecutive victory, while Hannelore Hanover was idle.

Also idle last week was No. 1 Always B Miki, No. 3 Southwind Frank, No. 7 Freaky Feet Pete, No. 8 Control The Moment, and No. 10 Lady Shadow.

The remaining horses in the Top 10 -- No. 2 Wiggle It Jiggleit, No. 6 Betting Line, and No. 9 Racing Hill all posted wins last week.

The Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll does not determine Horse of the Year. The U.S. Harness Writers Association votes in December on all 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.
