The Stewards' Corner
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.

Saez) breaks sharply to the outside causing a chain reaction among #’ 2 Mamdooha, # 4 Sacred Moon, and # 5 Hey Kiddo. # 4 Sacred Moon ( J. Castellano) must check hard and is squeezed back to trail the field after the incident. # 1 was pulled up shortly after the incident and walked off the track under her own power. After reviewing the video the race is official as is.
