Hightstown, NJ --- The top seven positions in the Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll were unchanged this week, but two pacing colts joined the rankings at Nos. 8 and 10.

Lather Up, who won his Ohio Sire Stakes championship with a track-record performance over a sloppy track Saturday at Scioto, returned at No. 8 after two weeks out of the Top 10. Stay Hungry makes his first appearance in the Top 10, at 10th, following his win in a division of the Simcoe Stakes.

Lazarus N and Ariana G dropped from the Top 10.

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.
