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 23, 2014
Race 3: Steward’s Inquiry and Jockey’s Objection: Rosie Napravnik, the rider of # 6 Pretty Fancy, lodged a claim of foul against # 5 Got Lucky (John Velazquez) and # 4 Madaket Millie (Javier Castellano) for alleged interference in the stretch. In the vicinity of the 1/16 pole, # 6 steadies briefly between #’s 5 and 4. # 1 Unbridledexplosion (Brian Hernandez, Jr.) closes strongly on the far outside to finish second, with # 6 Pretty Fancy finishing fourth, one length behind # 4. The objection was disallowed and the race declared Official as is.
Order of finish: 5 -1 – 4 – 6
