'Bisou' Moves to Top of NTRA TB Poll Following Doping Controversy


Midnight BisouSarah Andrew

Champion Midnight Bisou (Midnight Lute) took the lead in this week's NTRA Top Thoroughbred Poll with 376 votes. The position was previously held by fellow champion Maximum Security (New Year's Day), who bested his female counterpart in the $20 million Saudi Cup Feb. 29. In the wake of the doping controversy, which involved Maximum Security's trainer Jason Servis, NTRA voers were given the opportunity to adjust their selections if they wanted.

Maximum Security still received 241 votes, but dropped to fourth behind GI Pegasus World Cup victor Mucho Gusto (Mucho Macho Man), who was second with 316 votes, and GI Pegasus World Cup Turf victor Zulu Alpha (English Channel), who was third with 267 votes.
