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 - May 31, 2014
Race 10: Stewards inquiry into the stretch run: Inside the 1/16 pole, # 10 Midnightatmarions (Taylor Rice) bolts sharply inside, unseating her rider and crashing through the inside rail. There were no other horses involved in the incident, and no further action was warranted. The race was declared official as is.
