Hightstown, NJ — After trotting the fastest mile in Canadian history over the weekend, Hannelore Hanover rockets from zero to 117 in this week’s Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll. The 7-year-old mare is the top newcomer in the rankings, going from pointless to No. 6 following her 1:50.3 win in her Armbro Flight elimination Friday at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
Other newcomers are No. 9 Warrawee Ubeaut and No. 10 Workin Ona Mystery. Warrawee Ubeaut won her Fan Hanover Stakes elimination while Workin Ona Mystery captured his North America Cup elim. Both 3-year-olds are undefeated in three races.
Shartin N, who won the prep race for this weekend’s Roses Are Red Stakes, remains No. 1 while Atlanta, who won the other Armbro Flight elimination with a then Canadian-record-equaling 1:51 clocking, stays No. 2.
Bettor’s Wish, who won his elimination for the North America Cup, goes from sixth to No. 3. Greenshoe and Western Fame, who were both idle last week, complete the top five.
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.
