Hightstown, NJ — North America Cup winner Captain Crunch moves to No. 3 in this week’s harness racing Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll while Fan Hanover winner Treacherous Reign and Goodtimes winner Pilot Discretion join the Top 10.

Shartin N, who won the Roses Are Red Stakes, remains No. 1 and is followed by Armbro Flight winner Atlanta. Captain Crunch vaults from seventh to third with idle Greenshoe and North America Cup runner-up Bettor’s Wish completing the top five. Captain Crunch and Atlanta both won last week with Canadian record performances.

Western Fame, who was idle, is sixth. Treacherous Reign appears at No. 7 in the rankings, one spot ahead of Fan Hanover runner-up Warrawee Ubeaut. Pilot Discretion is No. 10, one spot below idle Gimpanzee.

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.
