Two Million Qualifiers Move Up Poll

Two freshman make their move in the AQHA Poll

Q-Racing Journal

Two freshman join this week's racing poll.

Docs Best Card and Ima Fearless Hero, the two-fastest qualifiers Sunday for the $1,957,175 Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity (G1), both gained ground in this week's AQHA National Poll for the 2-year-olds. Docs Best Card moved up one spot to No. 8 in the rankings, while Ima Fearless Hero debuted in the poll at No. 10. Meanwhile, the top of the poll tightened considerably in balloting this week as All American Futurity (G1) winner Jess Good Candy now has a tenuous 103-102 edge over fast-closing double-Grade 1 winner Tres Friends.

There were no major changes in the rankings this week for the 3-year-olds and older. Moonist continues to hold a solid 105-97 edge in the balloting over Heza Dasha Fire. Next month's Champion of Champions (G1) at Los Alamitos awaits many of the top older horses.
