It should be no surprise that the three winners of this year’s Triple Crown races would top the 15th and final National Thoroughbred Racing Association’s 3-Year-Old poll, with Preakness Stakes (gr. I) winner Lookin At Lucky   emerging on top.

In fact, with 17 of the 20 first-place votes, Lookin At Lucky dominated the poll, with Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) winner Super Saver  , the now-retired Eskendereya  , and the filly Blind Luck garnering the three other first-place votes. Lookin At Lucky tallied 197 total votes, followed by 159 for Super Saver and 154 for Belmont Stakes (gr. I) winner Drosselmeyer.

Meanwhile, in the National Poll that includes all horses, Lookin At Lucky was third and Super Saver sixth. Undefeated mare Zenyatta tops the National Poll, with 13 first-place votes and 184 total votes. She is followed closely by Quality Road  , with 182 total votes and seven first-place votes. The National Poll runs through the Breeders’ Cup World Championships.

The poll covered racing performances through June 6. The poll of racing officials and media is tallied on a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis.
