Sebastian K, despite his photo finish first loss since coming to the USA last week in the Maple Leaf Trot, remains strongly in the #1 spot in the Hambletonian/Breeders Crown Top Ten Poll. He received 29 of the 35 first place votes with Father Patrick getting three votes and Sweet Lou getting two votes.

Someone even used their first place vote by sentimentally giving it to Modern Family.

Seems that a lot of voters feel that Dancin Yankee is not worthy of Top Ten status. He has only won 13 of his 20 starts, three seconds, one third while competing week in and week again against the best pacers in the country. He has won his last five in a row, eight of his last ten, a record of 1:57.2 and has beaten Sweet Lou. Plus he has raced and won at four different tracks already this season, including two half mile ovals.

Pretty much the same for Perfect Alliance, who after two straight losses (she had 13 straight win to start off the year), is off the Top Ten list. It is every tough to remain on the board this season.
