Freehold, NJ --- The field is gaining on Wiggle It Jiggleit in this week’s harness racing Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll.

Wiggle It Jiggleit -- who finished second to Always B Miki in a world-record-equaling mile in the Jim Ewart Memorial on Saturday -- remains No. 1, but his lead is only 16 points over No. 2 Hannelore Hanover. The two were separated by 64 points last week.

Hannelore Hanover won her elimination for the Maple Leaf Trot last weekend, extending her win streak to nine.

Always B Miki gained 72 points in the poll and vaults from fifth to third in the rankings following his 1:47 triumph at Eldorado Scioto Downs in the Ewart.

Betting Line won the Simcoe Stakes last weekend, pushing his win streak to 11 races, and is No. 4 in the poll. Canadian Trotting Classic elimination winner Marion Marauder is fifth.

The top five horses in the rankings are separated by 78 points. The gap from No. 5 Marion Marauder to No. 6 Racing Hill is 114 points.

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.
