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 - July 10, 2011
RACE 5: Steward’s Inquiry into the start. At the break, # 2 La Chiquilina ducks in sharply unseating the jockey, J. Sanchez. La Chiquilina proceeds to run loose the wrong way of the track, but does not interfere with the race. The race is declared official as is.
