One newcomer to each of this week’s AQHA Racing-Horseplayernow.com National Top-10 polls each debuted at No. 6 for both the 2-year-olds and the 3-year-olds and older divisions. Meanwhile, the top of the national rankings continued to be held by juvenile Lota PYC and reigning world champion Cold Cash 123 in their respective polls.

This week’s newcomer among the 2-year-olds is the unbeaten PYC Kant Katch Me. On Saturday, the Judd Kearl-trainee dazzled in trials for the $1,115,000 Heritage Place Futurity (G1) at Remington Park. Now 3-for-3 lifetime, PYC Kant Katch Me’s resume includes a score in the Remington Park Juvenile Stakes (R), the consolation to the Remington Park Futurity.

As for the older horses, A Toss Up debuted this week at No. 6. A winner in three of four starts this year, his victories in the Eastex Handicap (G2), Remington Park Derby (R) and Sooner State Stakes (RG1) for trainer Eddie Willis boosted him into the ranks.
