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 - August 18, 2012
RACE 6: Steward’s Inquiry:
Approaching the 3/8 pole, # 5 Fast Grievance (D. Cohen) passes inside # 12 Mightylover (I.Ortiz Jr.) then proceeds to shift out, crossing # 12. .
# 12 Mightylover (I.Ortiz Jr.), who is slowing, appears to clip heels of # 5, loses action and I. Ortiz, Jr. is unseated.
In the judgment of the stewards, the race videos provided insufficient information to warrant further action.
The race was declared official as is.
