There were no major changes this week to the AQHA Racing-Horseplayernow.com national rankings for the 2-year-olds or 3-year-olds and older divisions. All American Futurity (G1) winner Handsome Jack Flash remained a unanimous No. 1 among the juveniles, while multiple Grade 1 winner Last To Fire continued to pace the older horses.
 
Coincidentally, each poll saw just one new face at No. 10. Hobbs America Futurity (G2) qualifier You N How Many More snuck back into the 2-year-old rankings this week at No. 10. Pollsters also adjusted the bottom of the older-horse rankings by returning Jess Featureme Quick to the list.
