Bettor’s Wish moves up in Poll to 4th place

Hightstown, NJ — McWicked, the 2018 Horse of the Year in the U.S. and Canada, returned to the harness racing top 10 in the Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll thanks to his win in the Roll With Joe Open Pace this past Sunday at Tioga Downs. The 8-year-old stallion landed in the No. 10 spot in this week’s rankings, his first appearance in the top 10 since week two, when he was ninth.

Shartin N, who won the Artiscape at Tioga Downs on Sunday, remained entrenched at No. 1, the position she has held for all 13 weeks of the rankings. Lather Up (idle) was second, followed by Captain Crunch (idle), Bettor’s Wish (winner of a Kentucky Sire Stakes division) and Greenshoe (winner of the Zweig Memorial).

Forbidden Trade (idle) was sixth. Completing the top 10 were Atlanta (idle), Real Cool Sam (winner of a Pennsylvania Sire Stakes division), When Dovescry (who won a qualifier last week), and McWicked.

The Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, which runs weekly through November, does not determine Horse of the Year. The members of the U.S. Harness Writers Association vote 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.
