Hightstown, NJ — There was little movement in this week’s Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, with Milstein Memorial winner Bettor’s Wish making the biggest gain, going from seventh to fifth in the rankings.

Shartin N, who was idle, continued her hold on to No. 1 while Dan Patch Stakes winner Lather Up stayed at No. 2. Lather Up added two first-place votes, giving him five. Shartin N, who has held the poll’s top position for the entire season, had the remaining 30 first-place nods.

Captain Crunch, who was idle, moved from fourth to third as Atlanta dropped a spot following her setback in the Joie De Vie Stakes.

The only other horse in the top 10 who raced was Forbidden Trade, who won an Ontario Sire Stakes Gold division Monday night.

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.
