Wave Her Down jumps up in AQHA Racing Poll.

After extending her unbeaten streak to three with a victory in Sunday’s $1.06 Ed Burke Million Futurity (G1) at Los Alamitos, Wave Her Down soared into the AQHA Racing National Poll for 2-year-olds and debuted at No. 2 in the rankings.

Ridden by Cody Jensen for trainer Paul Jones and owners Jeffrey and Kim Pitcher, the Utah-bred daughter of First Down Dash prevailed by a neck in the seven-figure stakes over No. 6 ranked Wicked Affair and boosted her earnings to $435,115.

Blue Corazon, the undefeated winner of the $1 million Ruidoso Futurity (G1) earlier in the month, held the top spot in the rankings for the third consecutive week.

The poll for older horses was virtually unchanged with Jessies First Down, a two-time Grade 1 winner this year and two-time reigning world champion, perched at No. 1 for the ninth week in a row.

The integrity of American Quarter Horse racing is of utmost importance to AQHA. As part of a multifaceted effort to ensure integrity, AQHA has instituted a policy concerning awards and publicity that makes horses with racing medication positives and horses trained by trainers with racing medication positives ineligible for the AQHA Racing National Polls.
