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 - March 11, 2012
RACE 3: Jockeys objection into the running of the 3rd race. The # 4 Take a Walk (D Cohen) placed an objection on the # 6 Chairman Now (A Garcia) and the # 1 Congo (C Velasquez) for alleged interference at around the 1/8 pole. The # 4 while driving into a tight spot rode into the # 6 then having to alter course to go around the # 1. After reviewing the video and in the opinion of the Stewards the incident warranted no action and the race is official as is.
