Game On Dude Tops HRN Ranker Poll

HRN readers may have noticed the nifty ranker poll that went up on our homepage shortly after the Belmont. We showed you two active horses and asked you to choose which was better. We chose 9 of the top active horses for this head-to-head matchup: Game On Dude, Royal Delta, Bodemeister, Wise Dan, Shackleford, Mucho Macho Man, Ron The Greek, Animal Kingdom and Union Rags. Unfortunately, Union Rags retired after the poll began and we couldn't take him out while voting was active.
 
After 8 weeks of voting and over 8,000 votes, we have a clear winner!

Game On Dude won in 70% of the head-to-head matchups. The graphic below shows where each of the candidates finished.
 
 

Stay tuned to the homepage for more ranker polls throughout the summer & fall!

I could do without union rags and animal kingdom. Toss in Acclimation and Paynter. Drop bode down to 7-9.
How can RTG be behind Bodemeister, Union Rags, or even GOD. He has one 3 G1 and Game On Dude laid an egg at Dubai! Come on!
Id move RTG ahead of MMM and take AK off the top 10 and add Paynter...
I like how Wise Dan placed. And they call me a troll!
Bode has run monster races and set rediculous fractions in the KD to finish second. Not to mention him annihilating his foes in the Arkansas. I guess people think he is better quality. I don't know. What I do know is that I agree with these results. Mostly, anyways.
So Bode runs a couple of Seconds with a win in Arkansas, and he sits ahead of Mucho Macho Man?, and Ron the GReek?....never let fans vote..lol . JK.
