Propelled by a victory in Saturday‚Äôs $1,031,211 Texas Classic Futurity (G1) at Lone Star Park, Dulce Sin Tacha made his first appearance in the AQHA Racing National Poll for 2-year-olds at No. 4 in the rankings. 

The Texas-bred colt by Jess Good Candy has won five of six starts this year, but this was his first stakes win and boosted his earnings to $518,403. 

The rest of the juvenile poll was mostly unchanged, with undefeated All American Futurity (G1) winner Whistle Stop Cafe again the unanimous No. 1 choice among voters. 

The older-horse poll only saw one change with Perrys Double Down, a gelded son of Mr Jess Perry, getting in at No. 10 following his victory in the $393,210 Texas Classic Derby (G1), also run on Saturday at Lone Star Park. 

Gold Heart Eagle V, winner of the All American Derby (G1), retained the top spot once again. 

The next set of AQHA Racing Polls will come out in mid-December following the runnings of the Champion of Champions (G1) and Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity (G1) in Southern California.  

The integrity of American Quarter Horse racing is of utmost importance to AQHA. As part of a multifaceted effort to ensure integrity, AQHA has instituted a policy concerning awards and publicity that makes horses with racing medication positives and horses trained by trainers with racing medication positives ineligible for the AQHA Racing National Polls.
