Maxie Lee Memorial winner Manchego remained the No. 1-ranked horse in the Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, adding 11 first-place votes and 43 points to her Week One totals.

The six-year-old female trotter received 31 of 35 first-place votes and was five points shy of a perfect 350.

Abuckabett Hanover, undefeated in three starts, and Commodore Barry Invitational champion Nicholas Beach received the remaining first-place tallies and improved their positions in the rankings. Abuckabett Hanover moved from fourth to second while Nicholas Beach went from sixth to fourth.

Nearly 100 points separated Nicholas Beach from No. 5 Its Academic, who was fourth in the Maxie Lee.

Southwind Gendry, who like Abuckabett Hanover won a division of the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes, and Betsy Ross Invitational winner Keep Rockin A moved into the top 10.

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.
