Ms Jingles put a cap on the 2012 Delta Downs meeting with an authoritative score Saturday in the $551,055 Lee Berwick Memorial Futurity (RG1), stamping herself as the top Louisiana-bred juvenile. The win also earned the four-time winner at the meeting a No. 8 national ranking in this week’s AQHA Racing-Horseplayernow.com National Top-10 Poll for 2-year-olds.

The national juvenile rankings continue to be led by One Dashing Eagle and PJ Chick In Black, separated by only four points in the balloting. But the landscape figures to change next week when the results of Sunday’s Rainbow Futurity (G1) at Ruidoso Downs come into focus.

As for the older horses, there were no changes to the national top-10 this week. Unanimous No. 1 Cold Cash 123 continues to headline the list, which includes El Aguila Real in the No. 2 slot for the second straight week. Saturday’s Rainbow Derby (G1) at Ruidoso Downs should have some say in next week’s polling.
