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 - March 9, 2012
RACE 7:Stewards inquiry into the stretch run of the 7th race. The # 6 Supsa (J Rodriguez) makes a sharp move out at the 1/8th pole causing the # 8 Sweet Moonbeam (I Ortiz ) to take up sharply and alter course. After reviewing the video and in the opinion of the Stewards the incident did effect the outcome of the race, therefore the # 6 is disqualified from fourth and placed sixth behind the # 8.
