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 - September 8, 2012
RACE 7: Approaching the finish, # 2 Palace (J. Alvarado) drifts out making light contact with # 8 Tower in Court (M. Luzzi). # 2 bobbles and falls as a result of the contact and does not finish.
No action is warranted, as # 2 and # 8 are each drifting and contributing to the contact.
The race was declared official as is.s
