Freehold, NJ --- Five-year-old pacing stallion Always B Miki finished his harness racing career in style with a 4-1/4 length win in the TVG Free For All Series championship for male pacers Saturday at the Meadowlands and extended his lead over idle Wiggle It Jiggleit for the top spot in this week’s Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll.

No. 1 Always B Miki holds a 48-point advantage over No. 2 Wiggle It Jiggleit, an increase of 14 points from a week ago.

Other TVG Series winners included No. 3-ranked Hannelore Hanover, who won among older female trotters, and No. 6 Lady Shadow, who moved up four places in the rankings off her triumph in the pacing mare division.

Next week will be the final Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll of the year. The 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.
