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. Click on the links below to read those explanations.

Race Decisions - November 23, 2012

RACE 8:After passing the wire for the first time, # 9 Runaway Jim (R. Maragh) shifts in sharply putting pressure on # 10 Irish Lion (Irad Ortiz, Jr.) causing him to clip heels.  Irish Lion bubbled but did not fall, and the jockey was unseated. For this interference, # 9 was disqualified from fifth and placed last.
