(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 - August 16, 2012
RACE 11: Steward’s Inquiry:
In the vicinity of the ½ mile pole, # 4 Hey Little Girl (J. Lezcano) stumbles badly after clipping heels of # 3 Shoptillclosing (W. Garcia). The rider of # 4 is having difficulty controlling his filly in tight quarters
and runs up on the heels of # 3, thus causing the incident. No action was warranted. The race was declared official as is.
