Freehold, NJ --- There is no movement in the top seven spots in this week’s Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, but two newcomers join the harness racing rankings at No. 8 and No. 10.

Five-year-old male trotter Resolve returns to the Top 10 thanks to his victory in the Maple Leaf Trot, where No. 2-ranked Hannelore Hanover finished second.

Female trotter Ariana G becomes the first 2-year-old in this year’s Top 10 following her triumph in the Peaceful Way Stakes. The filly is undefeated in seven starts.

Wiggle It Jiggleit, who won the Bobby Quillen Memorial on Monday, remains 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 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.
