Hannelore Hanover continues to sit atop the 2018 Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown Standardbred Poll, as the authoritative daughter of Swan For All has yet to be dethroned from the top spot this year.

The Ron Burke-trained and Yannick Gingras-driven Hannelore Hanover – who has been atop the poll all year – remains in the top spot after Week 7 polling. She attracted a whopping 32 first-place votes and garnered 346 overall points. The six-year-old daughter of Swan For All is undefeated this year after five starts, the most recent of which was an authoritative win in an uber-sharp 1:50.3 over the Meadowlands Racetrack in late June.

The results from Week 7 of the poll appear below.

(Rank – Horse [first-place votes] – Total Points – Previous)
1 – Hannelore Hanover (32) – 346 – 1
2 – Shartin N – 269 – 2
3 – Lather Up – 228 – 3
4 – Atlanta – 217 – 4
5 – McWicked (1) – 174 – 5

8 – Kissin In The Sand – 97 – 8
9 – Wolfgang – 85 – 7
10 – Marion Marauder – 49 – 10

(Foiled Again received two first-place votes.)


The Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll is voted on by harness racing media representatives that cover North American Standardbred racing.

The rankings are based on the votes of harness racing media representatives on a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis.

The Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll does not determine Horse of the Year. The U.S. Harness Writers Association votes in December on all Dan Patch Award division winners plus Trotter of the Year, Pacer of the Year and Horse of the Year. The Dan Patch Awards are separate from the O'Brien Awards, which recognize Canada's top Standardbreds of a given racing season.
