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 1, 2013
Race 10: Steward’s Inquiry into the Start. # 1 Brazen Persuasion (Rosie Napravnik) refused at the start of the race. The filly was not impeded and was thus considered a starter.
No action was warranted and the race declared official as is.
