The Stewards' Corner
Welcome to the Stewards’ Corner, where you will find explanations of the decisions that our stewards make on race days. Directly following any decision they make having to do with the official order of finish, including inquiries and objections, the stewards – one appointed by The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA), one appointed by the New York State Gaming Commission, and one appointed by The Jockey Club (TJC) – provide an explanation of what happened and the reason for their decision.

Race Decisions - January 7, 2012
RACE 4: Jockey’s Objection: The rider of # 3 Warrior From Above (S. Husbands) lodged a claim of foul against the winner, # 11 Tinto (F. Leon) for alleged interference in the stretch. In the vicinity of the 1/16 pole, # 11 drifts in causing # 10 Digital Joe (J. Valdivia, Jr.) to steady with # 3 inside him on the rail.
# 3 is not impeded or forced to check and continues strongly to finish second.
The objection is disallowed and the race made official as is.
