Betting Line, a 3-year-old male pacer who won last weekend’s Pepsi North America Cup with a stakes-record-equaling 1:47.4, vaults from ninth to No. 2 in this week’s Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, falling behind only Wiggle It Jiggleit in the harness racing rankings.

Hannelore Hanover, a 4-year-old female trotter, enters the rankings at No. 7 off her world-record-equaling performance in the Armbro Flight Stakes. Pure Country, a 3-year-old female pacer, is also a newcomer, landing at No. 10 following her triumph in the Fan Hanover Stakes.
