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.

Race Decisions - December 13, 2012
RACE 1:Stewards inquiry and jockeys objection from the 4th place finisher # 3 Quark (C.Hill) against the 3rd place finisher # 5 My Brown Eyed Baby(W. Garcia) for alleged interference going into the first turn. # 5 comes off the rail and # 3 has to steady, but # 3 steadily advanced down the backstretch ahead of # 5 and in the judgment of the stewards this incident did not alter the final placement of the race and is official as is.
