The Thanksgiving-week edition of the AQHA Racing-Horseplayernow.com National Top 10 rankings were relatively quiet as top-ranked juvenile One Dashing Eagle and top-rated older horse Cold Cash 123 continued to pace their respective divisions. There were no newcomers to either poll this week.

The poll’s only noticeable movement came with rise of 2-year-old A Dream To Remember, who moved up three spots this week to No. 6. The Paul Jones trainee, who won the Hobbs America Futurity (G2) at Zia Park last month, debuted in the rankings October 10 and hit her highest ranking this week. The filly is set to contest the $200,000 Southwest Juvenile Championship (G1) this weekend at Zia Park.
