Freehold, NJ --- Five-year-old pacing stallion Always B Miki is harness racing’s No. 1-ranked horse in this year’s final Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll.

Always B Miki received 27 first-place votes in the final poll and was second on the remaining eight ballots. Four-year-old pacing gelding Wiggle It Jiggleit received the other eight first-place votes. Always B Miki and Wiggle It Jiggleit were the only horses to be ranked No. 1 during the season.


The Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll does not determine Horse of the Year. The U.S. Harness Writers Association votes in December on all Dan Patch Award division winners plus Trotter of the Year, Pacer of the Year and Horse of the Year.


Rankings based on the votes of harness racing media representatives on a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis.
