There were no changes in this week’s AQHA Racing-Horseplayernow.com National Top-10 rankings for either the 2-year-olds or the 3-year-olds and older divisions. Pollsters once again filed unanimous choices in the top spots as One Dashing Eagle garnered all 100 points in the juvenile rankings and Cold Cash 123 swept the 100 points of the older horse balloting. It’s the second consecutive week with a pair of unanimous No. 1-ranked horses.

Top-ranked Cold Cash 123 arrived at Los Alamitos late last week and will embark on a West Coast run now under the tutelage of trainer Denny Ekins. The Champion of Champions (G1) qualifier could reappear in the Grade 1 Go Man Go Handicap on September 23 and/or the Robert L. Boniface Los Alamitos Invitational Championship on October 28.
