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 - November 15, 2012
RACE 5: Inquiry and Jockeys objection into the stretch run approaching the 3/16 pole. The # 5 Vegas No Show (P Lopez) while running very erratic takes up when the # 3 Violence ( J Castellano) takes a short step in then proceeds to pull away from the field. After reviewing the video and in the opinion of the Stewards the incident did not alter the finish of the race. The race is official as is.
