Thank you for participating in the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred/The Racing Biz Top Midlantic-bred Poll.
In your choices, please choose those horses that you believe have accomplished the most during this calendar year. We understand that there may be (or you may believe there is) a better horse that is expected to return to racing later in the season. However, we ask that you restrict your choices to those horses that have raced. You must choose five older horses — male or female — and five three year-olds (also male or female).
The one exception to that is your “Wildcard Selection.” You may — but do not have to — enter one horse in the Wildcard Selection category. That horse need not have raced during this calendar year but must be expected to return to racing during the year. It need not be a horse you consider best in its division, merely one that you would have included on your list of five had you been allowed to.
During the year, as we did last year, we will do the poll once each month, at the beginning of the month. We will send each voter a list of the Midlantic-breds that have won or placed in stakes to help guide your selection.
The choice by the group of Top Midlantic-bred for 2016 was Cathryn Sophia.
Thanks again for participating.
