This week, for the first time, two people regularly seen on the pages of The Racing Biz participated in the National Thoroughbred Racing Association’s NTRA Top Thoroughbred Poll.

Nick Hahn and Frank Vespe both participated in the poll, which combines the votes of around four dozen racing media folks to yield a list of the top 10 Thoroughbreds in training in North America, with an eye towards which horse will ultimately be Horse of the Year.

Herewith, submitted without comment, their selections, along with those of the group as a whole:
