NO CHANGES AT THE TOP IN NTRA THOROUGHBRED POLLS
LEXINGTON, Ky. (September 21, 2020) – A quiet weekend in both the handicap and sophomore ranks resulted in relatively little movement in the latest National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) Top Thoroughbred Poll and NTRA Top Three-Year-Old Poll.
Champion Maximum Security continues to head up the Top Thoroughbred Poll ahead of his expected run in the Grade 1 Awesome Again Stakes at Santa Anita Park on September 26. The 4-year-old son of New Year’s Day earned 26 first-place votes and 349 points this week and will bring a six-race win streak into Saturday’s Awesome Again.
Multiple Grade 1 winner Vekoma remains in second with 9 first-place votes and 272 points followed by fellow top-level victor Tom’s d’Etat (3 first-place votes, 240 points) in third.
