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 - June 28, 2012

RACE 7: Jockey’s Objection:  R. Maragh, the rider of the second placed horse, # 10 Christina d’Oro, lodged an objection against the winner, # 6 Anna Sophia (J. Alvarado) for alleged interference in the stretch.

Through the stretch, # 6 does drift out, making light contact with # 10 a few strides before the wire.  In the judgment of the stewards, this did not alter the finish of the race.

The objection was disallowed and the race made official as is.
