There were no newcomers to this week’s Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, with the top-four positions unchanged from last week.

Gimpanzee and Tall Dark Stranger, both idle, remained 'one-two,' followed by Spirit of Massachusetts world record setter Manchego and Spirit of Massachusetts runner up Atlanta.

Gimpanzee received 24 first-place votes, unchanged from last week, while Tall Dark Stranger saw his total drop from 10 to six. Manchego gained four first-place votes.

Papi Rob Hanover, who won his Adios elimination with a world-record effort but was found on Monday to be injured, moved from No. 10 to No. 5 in the rankings. Papi Rob Hanover, who received one first-place vote, will miss the remainder of 2020.

Clara Barton winner Shartin N also moved up from a week ago, as she has moved from eighth to sixth. Rounding out the top 10 are Dancin Lou, Hurrikane Emperor, Ramona Hill and Back Of The Neck.

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.

Mike Mobley SAID...

It's very unfortunate that on the same day which Papi Rob Hanover received the first first-place vote of his career, it was announced that he most likely will never race again.
