Poll to heat up with year-end races approaching.

Poll to heat up with year-end races approaching.

With two months left in the year, the AQHA Racing National Polls were unchanged again to start November, but there figures to be movement nearly every week through the end of December with Grade 1 stakes on tap at Los Alamitos, Lone Star Park, Zia Park and Sunland Park just about every weekend.

In the poll for 3-year-olds and up, Hold Air Hostage, winner of the Grade 1 All American and Rainbow derbies, continued as a near-unanimous choice at the top.

The poll for 2-year-olds also remained steady with Fly Baby Fly, winner of the All American Futurity (G1), again keeping her spot at No. 1.
