AQHA Racing National Polls Steady as Major Weekends Approach

AMERICAN QUARTER HORSE ASSOCIATION—AUGUST 9, 2017—After a light weekend of American Quarter Horse stakes action, there was virtually no change to either of the AQHA Racing National Polls. Once again, two-time Grade 1 winner Eagle Jazz remained atop the 2-year-old poll for the ninth consecutive week and third straight as the unanimous choice.

In the poll for 3-year-olds and up, Zoomin Effortlessly, winner of the Grade 1 Remington Park Invitational Championship, maintained his position at the top for the 10th week in a row.

Looking forward in the coming weeks, the trials for the Grade 1 All American Futurity and All American Derby promise big changes, as well as a busy lineup of stakes and Bank of America Racing Challenge events going through Labor Day.
