Hightstown, NJ — Geocentric and T C I joined the Top 10 in the Week 15 edition of the Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll released Tuesday while the top-five positions in the rankings remained unchanged.

Confederate, who won the Kentucky Sire Stakes Championship Series final, was No. 1 for the fifth consecutive week, followed by the idle quartet of Sylvia Hanover, Bythemissal, It’s My Show and It’s Academic.

Seven Colors, Alrajah One IT, and Tattoo Artist occupied the next three spots. Geocentric moved into the Top 10 at No. 9 following her win in the KYSS Championship Series final while T C I landed at No. 10 after winning the Peter Haughton Memorial. Geocentric was previously in the Top 10 in Week 13, at 10th.

Special Way and Tactical Approach dropped from the Top 10. Special Way finished second in her KYSS Championship Series final while Tactical Approach was fourth in his KYSS Championship Series final.

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.
