AQHA Racing Poll

Poll still as major races approach.

Poll still as major races approach.

The voters for the AQHA Racing National Polls were steady in their opinions during the past month, and that trend continued into May’s final polls. However, a shakeup could be in store in June, as Remington Park has six graded stakes set for this coming weekend and Ruidoso Downs will present the Grade 1 Ruidoso Derby and Ruidoso Futurity the following weekend as Los Alamitos prepares to showcase major stakes.

Of note this week was a flip-flop of the top-two spots in the older-horse poll. Last week, two-time stakes winner Bodacious Eagle nosed out Jessies First Down by a single voting point for the No. 1 ranking, but in the latest poll, the tables were turned and reigning world champion Jessies First Down took back the lead by one point.
