Hightstown, NJ — Harness racing trotting filly Ramona Hill held on to the No. 1 spot in this week’s Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, but only one first-place vote and one point separate her from No. 2 Tall Dark Stranger. Ramona Hill was idle last week while Tall Dark Stranger won the Pepsi North America Cup.

Gimpanzee, who was idle, slid to third in an exchange of places with Tall Dark Stranger. Idle Shartin N and Fan Hanover winner Party Girl Hill rounded out the top five. Party Girl Hill was seventh last week.

Also seeing improved positions this week were Casual Breeze division winner Sorella (No. 6) and Goodtimes Stakes elimination winner Ready For Moni (No. 8). The remaining horses in the top 10 — Manchego, Reflect With Me, and Bettor’s Wish — were idle last week.

The Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll 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.
