RACE 4: Jockey’s Objection – J. Rodriguez, the rider of # 3 Ground Force, lodged a claim of foul against the winner, # 4 Southbeachsandy (J. Rose) for alleged interference in the vicinity of the 3/8 pole and at the top of the stretch. # 3 Ground Force finished second. In the judgment of the stewards, no action was warranted and the objection was dismissed.
The race was declared Official as is.
