This week's poll remained steady.

The Top 10 rankings in this week's AQHA Racing-Horseplayernow.com polls look the same as a week ago. There were no changes to either the 2-year-old poll or the version for 3-year-olds and older.

Ruidoso Derby (G1) winner Rock You enjoyed his second week atop the poll for elders, followed by Nellie Delaney. They are the season’s only horses to visit the No. 1 spot in the division. As for the 2-year-olds, Ruidoso Futurity (G1) champ Kiss My Hocks continued his top perch in the balloting once again this week.

Expect some major movement in the 2-year-old poll next week following the $1 million Ed Burke Million Futurity (G1) at Los Alamitos on Sunday.
