Flameaway Enters Top 10 in NTRA 3-Year-Old Poll

Week three of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association Top 3-Year-Old Poll shows slight movement and a new face in the top 10 after the Sam F. Davis Stakes (G3) at Tampa Bay Downs Feb. 10. 

Entering the poll for the first time is newcomer Flameaway (76) after his Sam F. Davis win. Flameaway earned 10 Road to the Kentucky Derby qualifying points with the win. However the Scat Daddy colt currently is not nominated to the Triple Crown, an oversight trainer Mark Casse and owner John Oxley realized after having missed the first deadline. They plan to nominate Flameaway before March 19.

Champion 2-year-old male Good Magic remains in first place with 398 votes, including 28 first-place votes.
