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!
