Each week during the extended Triple Crown season in 2020, members of the media around the country voted on the nation's top contenders in the NTRA Top Thoroughbred Poll. Find out the final 2020 top 3-year-old rankings below.

AMERICA'S TOP THOROUGHBREDS as of Oct. 26

When Starship Jubilee was claimed for $16,000 out of a second-place finish in a seven-and-a-half-furlong turf race at Gulfstream Park on Feb. 12, 2017, there was nothing distinguished about her career to that point and expectations were modest.

They’re all there in black and white: the Grade 1 wins, the Breeders’ Cup triumph, the Eclipse Award, the head-to-head advantage over a heralded rival. All the conventional measures the Thoroughbred racing community uses to separate the good from the great – those horses who reside in the ether with the all-timers.

The $2 million Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff is the signature race restricted to fillies and mares at the 2020 World Championships, which will be held Nov. 6-7 at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky.

Saturday’s Maryland Million is the day in the sun for the Maryland Thoroughbred breeding industry, one of the fastest-growing state breeding programs. The card at Laurel Park features 12 races, restricted to horses sired by a stallion standing in Maryland (in short, horses whose fathers are based at stallion farms in Maryland). Highlighting the card, as usual, is the $150,000 Maryland Million Classic Stakes.
