Comeback kid He Looks Hot returns to the poll.

He Looks Hot, who missed his entire 3-year-old season while recovering from surgeries for colic, made his debut this week in the AQHA Racing-Horseplayernow.com National Poll for older horses following his victory in the Vessels Maturity (G1) on July 3. The victory also earned He Looks Hot a berth in the December 10 Champion of Champions (G1) at Los Alamitos.

Zoomin Effortlessly continued to lead the rankings this week among the 3-year-olds and older. The Remington Park Championship (G1) winner holds a 108-99 poll advantage over Jess Good Candy, hero of last year's All American Futurity (G1) and this year's Ruidoso Derby (G1).

As for the 2-year-olds, Firecracker Futurity (G2) winner Platinum FDD edged into the rankings this week at No. 10. The juveniles continue to be paced by Heritage Place Futurity (G1) winner Duponte, whose hold on the top is a narrow 103-101 margin over Chazaq. The latter captured the Ed Burke Million Futurity (G1).
