Cold Cash 123 strengthened his position and remained the unanimous choice at No.1 in this week’s AQHA Racing-Horseplayernow.com National Top-10 Poll following his victory in Sunday’s $250,000 Remington Park Championship (G1). That race proved a major early season barometer for pollsters, as runner-up JLS Mr. Bigtime debuted at No. 5 in the rankings this week and third-place finisher Llano Teller moved up one spot from No. 3 to No. 2 nationally.

Also among the 3-year-olds and older, Heritage Place Derby (G2) winner Priceless Feature rocketed up the charts this week to No. 6 following his signature score Saturday at Remington Park.

As for the 2-year-olds, a new No. 1 has taken the perch this week in Heritage Place Futurity (G1) winner BP Cartels Alibi, who supplanted Lota PYC atop the rankings. The Trey Wood-trainee outran No. 3-ranked El Duero in the $1,048,560 final on Saturday night at Remington Park.
