The polls see seismic shifts after the 'Mega-Card' results.

The polls see seismic shifts after the 'Mega-Card' results.

Saturday night's aptly billed "Mega-Card" at Remington Park produced memorable finishes, as well as new national leaders, in this week's AQHA Racing-Horseplayernow.com national polls.

Heritage Place Futurity (G1) winner Duponte assumed the No. 1 spot among the nation's juveniles, while Zoomin Effortlessly's victory in the Remington Park Invitational Championship (G1) propelled him to the unanimous top spot for the elder division.

Duponte scored his second major futurity final of the young season, having captured the Harrah's Entertainment Futurity (G3) at Louisiana Downs in March. The Texas-bred registered 109 of a possible 110 points in the balloting to storm into the No. 1 ranking. Unbeaten Teller Baja, winner of the Remington Park Oklahoma-bred Futurity (RG3), dropped one spot this week as a clear-cut No. 2 in the poll.

Zoomin Effortlessly ran his win streak to eight in a row by capturing his third Grade 1 win of the 2016 season. The Zoomin For Bux gelding added to January's Championship at Sunland Park (G1) score and April's Leo Stakes (G1) victory. The poll move by Zoomin Effortlessly supplanted Moonist for the No. 1 spot for the first time in 2016. Moonist had been voted No. 1 in each poll since early March when the seasonal rankings debuted. Zoomin Effortlessly earned all 110 points possible in voting.
