Racing Poll

AQHA Poll solidifies going into Challenge weekend.

AQHA Poll solidifies going into Challenge weekend.

Saturday's Bank of America Racing Challenge Championships at Los Alamitos could have a major say in upcoming polls, but voters in this week's AQHA National Rankings made no significant changes to the pecking order heading into the big event.

Heza Dasha Fire remained the top-ranked older horse in the game, with a narrow 100-98 edge in the balloting over EC Jet One. Jess Good Candy looms third with 94 points this week. Expect AJs High, No. 6 this week, to make a case for ascension as one of the favorites in Saturday's Challenge Championship headliner.

There were no changes to the Top 10 rankings for the 2-year-olds this week. All American Futurity (G1) winner Imperial Eagle remains a near-unanimous choice at the top, with 109 of 110 possible points in the balloting. A Revenant remains a clear-cut No. 2 in the rankings.
